A total of 160 Bangladesh nationals, stranded in Malaysia due to travel restrictions enforced amidst the coronavirus pandemic, have returned home.

A special chartered flight of Malindo Airways carrying the passengers and a dead body of a Bangladeshi national landed at Dhaka's Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA) from Kuala Lumpur at 12pm on Wednesday. 

This initiative was under taken by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Bangladesh High Commission in Kuala Lumpur and Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB), with the support of GD Assist.

A press release was issued by GD Assist, a medical tourism venture of Green Delta Insurance Company Ltd, in this regard.

This is by far the first and largest evacuation of Bangladeshis from Malaysia during the corona epidemic, read the release.

Managing Director of GD Assist, Syed Moinuddin Ahmed said: "We are proud to have been able to continue their efforts of bringing the stranded countrymen home during this corona-riddled period and is especially thankful to the High Commission of Bangladesh in Malaysia, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) and Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) for their prompt support and assistance in making the evacuation happen as early as possible."

“GD Assist had also ensured Covid-19 screening facilities for all the returnees in two renowned hospitals in Kuala Lumpur,” he added.
