- Biman Bangladesh Airlines on 04 January returned to Manchester Airport with services from Dhaka, via Sylhet. The route was last served in summer 2012, and operates on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays with B787-8s. Over 70,000 people of Bangladeshi origin live in Northern England, according to the airport. While London has a non-stop Dhaka service, over two-thirds of all traffic between the UK and Bangladesh is indirect. In the year to November 2019, this amounted to 216,000 out of 314,000 passengers.
