A total of around 24,600 migrant workers have left the country for their respective workplaces in five countries, including Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, and UAE, in the last five days since April 17 via special flights.

In an inter-ministerial meeting on April 16, the government decided to operate around 100 special flights to Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, UAE, and Singapore in one week from April 17 so that several thousand migrant workers who remained stuck in the country due to a weeklong ban on international flights, can return to their workplaces.
Twelve airlines were allowed to operate direct flights to these five countries. They are: Biman Bangladesh Airlines, US Bangla Airlines, Saudia, Oman Air, Salam Air, Qatar Airways, Emirates, Etihad, Air Arabia, Air Arabia Abu Dhabi, Fly Dubai, and Singapore Airlines.
