US-Bangla Airlines (BS, Dhaka) has applied for slots at Kathmandu airport with a plan to resume operations to the Nepalese gateway on October 28, 2018, more than seven months after it suspended operations following the crash of one its Dash 8-400s there, local aviation website Aviation Nepal reported citing own sources.

The Bangladeshi carrier suspended its operations to Nepal two days after the crash in which 51 persons died, citing a shortage of aircraft. The move came amid reports of a misunderstanding in runway allocations between the aircraft's crew and Kathmandu ATC in the lead up to the accident.

Prior to the suspension, US-Bangla Airlines operated 4x weekly between Dhaka and Kathmandu.

The airline currently operates four B737-800s and three Dash 8-400s (with one unit of each type inactive) on domestic routes in Bangladesh, as well as to India, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Thailand, Qatar, and Oman.
