Two years ago, a ban was placed on the transport of air cargo from Dhaka directly to London, today that ban has been lifted. When the ban was placed, the Bangladesh government asked Redline Assured Security to work with Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport to increase the security to a satisfactory level. This has been accomplished and has led to the ban being lifted.
The ban meant that any cargo that was going into the UK would have to be taken to a separate country and rescreened before heading to London. After the UK implemented the ban, the European Union also flagged the airport, this created big expense for Bangladesh. They are hoping that the UK’s decision will push the EU, Australia and Germany to reconsider direct flights from Dhaka.
