Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 2 November 2011

Korean Air is providing 60 tons of relief goods, including 54,000 liters (36,000 1.5-liter bottles) of mineral water and 60,000 cups of noodles, to flood victims in Thailand.

The first relief goods were delivered to Bangkok via the KE653 flight from Seoul/Incheon on 31 October 2011 and the rest will be transferred through Korean Airs regular scheduled flights with timing dependent on the situation in Thailand and flight schedules.

Once the relief goods arrive in Bangkok, they will then be handed over to the Thai government for distribution via the Korean embassy in Bangkok.

Due to the devastating flood in Thailand, which started in July, more than 8 million civilians are estimated to have been affected so far and more than 600,000 workers have lost their jobs as industrial areas have been flooded.
