Sheikh Altaf Ali, civil aviation and tourism secretary, has been made an officer on special duty after an agreement was signed between Bangladesh and India in New Delhi to double the Indian flight frequencies to and from Dhaka.

The establishment ministry on Saturday issued a gazette notification to the effect.

Altaf, who led a government delegation in Delhi in the past week, singed a memorandum of understanding with the Indian authorities on the increase in flight frequencies of Indian airlines, including Air India and Jet Air, from 30 to 61 a week amid protest lodged by the Bangladesh national carrier Biman Bangladesh Airlines Limited, according to sources.

Altaf, also a director on Biman’s board, could not be contacted for comments.
