Thai Airways asked to increase flights to tourist destinations in provincial areas

Published on : Thursday, December 5, 2013

Thailand Prime Minister and Defence Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has called on national carrier Thai Airways International (THAI) to increase flights from Bangkok to tourist destinations in provincial areas, Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.

 

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul said Wednesday Yingluck made the call during a meeting of economic ministers and other relevant parties held in Bangkok earlier in the day.

 

THAI president Sorajak Kasemsuvan said the number of international passengers from Hong Kong, China, Europe and Australia to Thailand has fallen due to the ongoing political unrest in the country.

 

The Office of National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB) has proposed promotional activities like shopping campaigns be organised in areas not affected by anti-government protests to lure foreign tourists.

 

Surapong said the enforcement of the Internal Security Act (ISA) across Bangkok, neighbouring Nonthaburi province and other peripheral provinces will be maintained for a certain period of time.

 

Political protests are expected to continue after nationwide birthday celebrations of King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Thursday.
