Flight operations will be resumed at Sylhet's Osmani International Airport on Thursday after six days of suspension due to the ongoing flood, confirmed station manager Abdus Sattar on Wednesday  

The airport authorities had suspended flight operations at the airport as flood water inundated the runway on June 17. They had also rescheduled the flights to London. 

Though the floodwater receded from the airport on Sunday, flights operation could not be resumed as approach lights were still inundated. 

However, the airport authorities will only operate flights in the daytime. The decision to operate flights at night will be taken later, he said.  

The second round of flood devastated the northeastern part of the country, especially Sylhet, Sunamganj, Netrokona, and Habigabj districts.
