JAL Extends Reduction of Bangkok Flights

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 14 June 2010

Japan Airlines is extending the period of round-trip flight frequency reductions on its routes from Osaka (Kansai) and Nagoya (Chubu) to Bangkok until 15 July 2010.

 The airline said that the antigovernment demonstrations in Bangkok in April and May this year have led to sharp declines in passenger bookings to the South East Asian city.

 In swift response to the dip in traffic-figures, JAL temporarily reduced the number of weekly flights on these routes for the month of June 2010. As leisure passenger demand has been slow to recover with continued concern about the stability of the situation, JAL has now decided to extend the period of temporary flight reduction for an additional 15 days to the middle of July.

JAL said it anticipates recovery in demand during the upcoming summer holiday season and plans to reinstate from 16 July 2010, the once-daily flights connecting Osaka and Nagoya with Bangkok.

JAL continues to operate twice-daily flights between Tokyo (Narita) and Bangkok.
