Why book domestic flights within Bangladesh?

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.

What are domestic flights?

A domestic flight in Bangladesh is a non-stop flight that departs at one destination within Bangladesh and arrives at another destination within Bangladesh. Not many foreign airlines fly domestically in the country, so domestic flights within Bangladesh are almost always operated by Bangladeshi airlines.

There are currently eight commercial airports in the country. While there might not always be connections between every airport, most destinations in Bangladesh can be reached from Shahjalal International Airport in the country's capital, Dhaka.
