[SINGAPORE] Airlines are cutting flights to Bangkok and travel agents are bracing themselves for a further decline in travel demand after Thailand declared a state of emergency on Tuesday.
Singapore Airlines (SIA) is slashing a further 24 flights to Bangkok between Jan 23 and Feb 27, for a total of 43 cancelled flights. SIA - which typically operates around five flights a day to the Thai capital - had said earlier that it was cutting 19 flights over a six-week period from Jan 14 to Feb 25.
An SIA spokesman said: "We will be monitoring the situation and will provide updates on our website whenever necessary."
Passengers affected by the cancellations will be re-booked on other flights or given a refund....
