Launch services resume

Launch services resumed across Bangladesh on Monday morning after a disruption of more than 48 hours caused by cyclone ‘Bulbul’. Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) issued a notice in this regard, local media reported on Monday (Nov 11).

Launches have started plying their usual routes from 6 a.m., reports also said.

Earlier on Friday night, BIWTA suspended launch services on all routes as severe cyclone ‘Bulbul’ approached Bangladesh.

The cyclone battered Khulna and adjoining south western part of the country on early Sunday.
