Why book domestic flights in

Although Bangladesh is a relatively small country, travelling by air is still the most efficient way when it comes to saving time and hassle. For example, travelling from Dhaka to the popular beach destination Cox's Bazar without air transport would take you a train, a bus and over eight hours. Whereas, flying only takes one hour. 

Bangladesh's airports cover all the major destinations within the country, with eight airports scattered across the country. While there aren't flights between all airports, Dhaka is connected to each one and makes a great central point to reach any part of the country.
