Heavy rains have lashed Cox’s Bazar disrupting flights in and out of the coastal town’s airport, an aviation official has said.
“Flights from the airport have been hit badly. Two flights returned to Chattogram around 12:20pm on Wednesday,” said Md Saiduzzaman, manager of the Cox’s Bazar airport.
The two domestic flights made an emergency landing at Chattogram's Shah Amanat International Airport as they attempted several times to land in Cox’s Bazar, but failed, he told bdnews24.com.
However, he said the weather conditions improved somewhat around 12:30pm, allowing some flights to take off or land in and out of Cox’s Bazar.
The coastal town of Cox’s Bazar recorded around 155mm rain in the last 24 hours, according to the Met Office.
