Bangladesh and India want to launch a travel air bubble without any delay and the issue will be discussed in New Delhi during a virtual meeting of the next Joint Consultative Commission (JCC), officials said.

Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen is likely to visit New Delhi in the second week of September to advance the process, a senior official told UNB.

"The main purpose of his visit is to discuss air bubble arrangements," the official said adding that finding a date for the next JCC may also come up for discussions.

"Transport Bubbles" or "Air Travel Arrangements" are temporary arrangements between two countries aimed at resuming commercial passenger services at a time when regular international flights are suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
