Local media reports suggest that British Airways is looking to relaunch a service to Dhaka, in Bangladesh, soon.
British Airways has flown to Dhaka before, and last operated a scheduled service to the city in 2009.
With transatlantic traffic stalled, BA is hoping to make better use of its aircraft to other destinations. In September, it announced it would be returning to Lahore and increasing the frequency of its Islamabad flights.
By launching Dhaka it is betting that the ‘visiting friends and relatives’ market picks up faster than its core US business, which remains closed to passengers who have been in the UK and Europe recently.
