Passengers can use Biman Bangladesh’s flights which are still open to London and Manchester, the British High Commission in Dhaka has tweeted.

Separately, the US Embassy in Dhaka has said it is working on securing a flight to the United States in the next few days for US citizens and their family members who wish to depart Bangladesh.

“We do not yet have exact dates or times,” the embassy said on its website.
