SIA cutting Bangkok flights

Singapore Airlines will cancel 19 flights to Bangkok from mid-January to late February due to political turmoil in Thailand, a report says.

The Straits Times online said on Saturday that the national carrier would cancel 19 flights altogether from Jan 14 to Feb 25.

The airline will put affected passengers on other flights or offer refunds if they cancel the trips, airline spokesman Nicholas Ionides was quoted as saying.

SIA normally provides five daily flights from Singapore to Bangkok.

The unrest has also been affecting Singapore travellers who decided to switch their travel from Bangkok to other Thai destinations including Phuket, the Straits Times said, citing travel agents.
