JAL cuts flights to Bangkok


Japan Airlines said this week it would slash half its weekly flights to Bangkok for a whole month as violence in the city continues to intensify.

For the entire month of June, the carrier will cut its Osaka-Bangkok weekly flights from 7 to 4, and its Nagoya-Bangkok weekly flights from 7 to 3.

JAL said in a statement that the anti-government demonstrations in Bangkok had led to a decline in passenger bookings to the South East Asian city.

“The JAL Group strives to responsively adjust its capacity to match sudden changes in demand resulting from event risks that confront the airline industry”

More than 1700 people have been wounded and 67 killed since the Red Shirts began their protest in March.
