Dense fog halts flight operations at Dhaka airport

Flight operations at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka remained suspended for nearly eight hours due to dense fog today.

No inbound or outbound flights operated at the airport from 2:30am to 10:40am due to poor visibility caused by dense fog, AKM Rezaul Karim, spokesperson of Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB), told The Daily Star.

A total of 12 to 14 flights could not depart the airport between 7:30am and 10:40am, he said.

Spell of dense fog has been sweeping across the country causing disruptions to air and water ways for several days.
