From Sylhet to Dhaka Airport by train


I need following information: I want to go from Sylhet to Dhaka Airport. I must get the plane at 09.40 in the morning.

1. Which train from sylhet can I get? I saw on the Railway website that a train at 10pm night starts from Sylhet and arriving in Dhaka at 5am in the morning. Is this correct?

2. Can I get a direct train from Sylhet to Dhaka Airport (Railway Station) or must I go first to Kamlapur Railway station and then to Dhaka Airport Station?

3. How far is Dhaka Airport from Dhaka Kamlapur Railwaystation? How much time will I need to go with Rikshaw or taxi? I have to be in airport at about 6-7 am in the morning.

4. When I will go from Dhaka to Sylhet with GMG, then i must get first the luggage and then go to GMG counter. Where must I get the luggage in Dhaka Airport and how can I go to GMG counter?

Thanks for your posting here.

I am suggesting to get down at Airport railway station. It is just walking distance.

Thanks for that, but do you know if I have to change train in Dhaka or can train directly go from Sylhet to Dhaka Airport Railway Station?

And how far is Kamlapur Railwaystation from Airport Railway Station?

- According to this Upoban Express stops at "Dhaka BimanBandor" which is the Airport station stop in Dhaka.


- FYI Kamlapur is on the otherside of Dhaka Airport, even in the early hours of the morning it will take around atleast an hour to travel the distance even with a taxi.

-FYI It is nearly a mile to walk from the railway station to the international terminal so if you have heavy luggage and a family you might want to grab a taxi. from the station.

-IMO you should take a bus from Sylhet to Dhaka as it should get you earlier into Dhaka. I am not sure if the buses take the new route which passes the international airport, but best is to check.

Hope this helps
