Bangkok hit by international flight cancellations
Sim Kok Chwee, Singapore, November 1, 2011

ALREADY reeling from a spate of travel advisories and cancelled events (TTG Asia e-Daily, October 25) brought on by massive floods, Bangkok is now facing flight cancellations by a number of international carriers from North and South-east Asia.


Air China has halted one of two daily Beijing-Bangkok services till November 10, while China Southern has reduced its Guangzhou-Bangkok frequency from four- to three-daily over the same period.


Hainan Airlines has shut down its thrice-weekly Hangzhou-Bangkok services till November 22, while China Eastern Airlines cancelled its Shanghai-Bangkok flight on November 2, and its Kunming-Bangkok flight on November 4.


Other North Asian carriers cutting air services include Cathay Pacific Airways, which will operate four-daily instead of five-daily Hong Kong-Bangkok services till November 2, and China Airlines, which will operate two instead of three daily Taipei-Bangkok services till November 3.


China Airlines had also dropped its Kaohsiung-Bangkok flight on November 2, while Asiana Airlines cancelled a Seoul-Bangkok flight scheduled for yesterday.


In South-east Asia, Singapore Airlines will operate four instead of five daily Bangkok-Singapore flights till November 3. Vietnam Airlines will drop a daily Hanoi-Bangkok service till November 2, as well as one daily Ho Chi Minh City-Bangkok service till November 3.


Meanwhile, a TAT statement warned that the rising water level in the Chao Phraya River had caused some flooding at nearby tourist attractions, including some parts of Chinatown. Water-related tourist activities on the river have also been suspended.
