Our Correspondent

CHITTAGONG, Mar 21: Regent Airways will launch direct Chittagong-Bangkok flights from April 27. Flights of the private airline will fly on the route every Sunday and Thursday.

Chief executive of Regent Airways Dr MA Momen said this at a press meet in the city on Thursday afternoon. Chairman of Habib Group, which owns Regent Airways, Yakub Ali Montu and head of marketing of Regent Airways Irfan Huq were also present.

Dr Momen said they have fulfilled their commitment to provide air trips for the business persons and tourists of Chittagong. The flights will operate two days a week - Sunday and Thursday. The Chittagong-Bangkok-Chittagong direct flights will attract many travellers, he hoped. Mr Montu said the initiative to operate direct flights between Chittagong and Bangkok has been taken by Regent Airways as it attaches importance to the travellers of Chittagong.

The company will procure two more Boeing aircrafts in the near future, he said.

"As a business house of Chittagong we have special love and affection for this region. That is the reason behind our initiative. We hope to expand our activities in the future," he added.

Regent Airways had earlier started direct flights on Chittagong-Kolkata route. The airline expects to start direct flights from Chittagong to Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Hong Kong and destinations in the Middle East, he said.
