Suvarnabhumi Stranded Passengers
Tristan Beau de Lomenie, the Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel Bangkok‘s general manager, said the week-long closure of Suvarnabhumi Airport sent its occupancy down to only 10%, compared to 80% during normal times.
“Our hotel business will face difficulties next year. Thailand is now facing two crises – the global economic crisis and local political instability. We can’t stay without doing anything, otherwise we will lose,” he said.
EgyptAir on Saturday resumed its routine flights to and from the Suvarnabhumi international airport in the Thai capital of Bangkok after a ten-day suspension due to unrest in Thailand.
The Egyptian national flag carrier operates daily flights between Cairo and Bangkok.
Regarding the EgyptAir flights to China, which routinely stop over at Bangkok airport, had been affected in the past days by the unrest in Bangkok, the EgyptAir officer said these flights could be back into normal operations without problem.
“Now that the situation in Bangkok has changed for the better, flights to China will return to normal,” a senior official at the company Abdel-Ati Hamed said. (Xinhua)
Vietnam Airlines (VNA) Saturday resumed its service to Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok as the Thai airport recommenced full operations after a long shutdown due to antigovernment protesters.
Twenty stranded Vietnamese passengers were brought home on the first flight that landed in Vietnam around 2 p.m.
Two other flights, one from Hanoi and the other from Ho Chi Minh City, are scheduled to land at Suvarnabhumi Airport later in the day.
VNA chief representative Nguyen Khoi Nguyen in Bangkok, said two regular Vietnam Airlines flights â€“ from Hanoi and HCMC to Bangkok â€“ will take off as usual thereafter.
