Launches to ply at half capacity from April 1

Launches will start operation with 50 percent passengers from Thursday (April 1) as the country is witnessing a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases and deaths, said Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury, the state minister for shipping.

He made the announcement at a meeting at the secretariat on Wednesday (March 31).

Like buses and trains, launch owners have also proposed to charge 60 percent more than the existing fare on condition that they would carry 50 percent passengers of their capacities and maintain necessary health safety guidelines, Khalid Mahmud said.
