Aircraft takeoff and landing will remain suspended from 6pm to 2 am everyday at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA) starting from March 11 to June 10 due to renovation work.

The information was delivered by Civil Aviation Authority on Monday.

According to the directive, flight takeoff and landing will remain suspended for construction work of new high speed taxiway at third terminal of the airport.

Earlier, in a notice civil aviation authority said that flight operation will remain suspended from 10 December to 10 March. In this period all types of flight operation on HSIA runway will remain suspended from 12am to 8am.

As the new directive was given to suspend flight operation for more three months so basically the flight operation will remain suspended for 8 hours per day for six months starting from December 10 to June 10.

Sylhet Osmani International Airport has been kept ready as alternative runway. In case of emergency flight can be landed at Osmani Airport.

Meanwhile, the winter flight schedule of Shahjalal Airport has begun. Under the current schedule, times of flights after midnight have been changed. The airport authority follows the winter schedule starting from November. In this period dense fog remains most of the times at the airport starting from 2am to 9am. So visibility problem occurs sometimes for maintaining flight operation. In this case for emergency landing the flight has to divert for another airport.
