UAE national carrier Etihad Airways will cease all operations to Bangladesh's capital city Dhaka from October 1, a report said.

The airline did not confirm the reason behind its decision but will, however, continue to serve Dhaka through its codeshare partner Jet Airways via Mumbai, said a report in The Dhaka Tribune citing a letter from the carrier.

Etihad’s first service to Dhaka kicked off on May 4, 2006, and till date the carrier has flown more than 1.5 million passengers to and from Bangladesh.

The airline is also scheduled to suspend its flights between Abu Dhabi and Perth, Australia and Edinburgh, Scotland from October 1, 2018, the report said.
