More S'pore-Bkk flights axed as travellers shun city

Fewer flights are being operated between Singapore and Bangkok as more travellers continue to shun the volatile Thai capital.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has confirmed a second round of cuts to its flights to Bangkok, while budget carrier Tigerair axed its first flights on Monday.

Travel agents foresee more cancellations in the coming weeks as the city went into a 60-day state of emergency from Thursday.

SIA spokesman Nicholas Ionides said that in view of the current situation, the airline will cut another 24 flights to Bangkok from now until Feb 27.

This is on top of a previously announced reduction of 19 flights.

SIA, which usually flies five times a day to Bangkok, will put affected customers on other flights or give them a refund, he said.
