Flights, ferry services resumed in Thailand post Pabuk tropical storm

Published on : Monday, January 7, 2019

As the first tropical storm Pabuk slowed and headed into the Andaman Sea, Thailand resumed flights to its southern provinces on Saturday (January 5).

 

Airports were shut in Surat Thani and the holiday island of Koh Samui and all flights cancelled before tropical storm Pabuk hit land in Nakhon Si Thammarat on Friday arriving from the Gulf of Thailand. But on Saturday, the storm lost speed and was downgraded to a depression as it moved off land.

 

Bangkok Airways resumed normal operations early on Saturday and added extra flights to assist stranded passengers. The airports at Nakhon Si Thammarat and Surat Thani resumed operations at noon.

 

Also, most ferry services to Thailand’s southern holiday islands have resumed following suspension for the storm.

 

Pabuk is the first tropical storm in 30 years to hit Thailand which has left behind a trail of homes damaged by fallen trees or blown-off roofs, and disrupted power networks.
