Airlines have so far cancelled a total of 112 scheduled flights, or 56 round-trips, from Singapore and Hong Kong to Bangkok until late February because of the reduced demand for seats.

Singapore Airlines will cut one flight each day from January 14 to February 25, a total of 19 round-trip flights, from the current schedule of 215 flights during that period.It cited the political turmoil in Thailand as the main reason.

Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific has said it is cutting one round-trip each day between January 7 and 14, except January 9. Altogether, a total of seven round-trip flights between Bangkok and Hong Kong will be cut during the period.

Hong Kong Airlines reduces its flights between Bangkok and Hong Kong by 30 round-trip flights from January 4 to Jan 30, from a total of 110 flights. This means a cut of one or two flights on average each day.

Some Chinese airlines in Shenzhen are considering cancelling flights to Bangkok as well. Chinese TV stations claimed as many as 60 flights would be cancelled.

Despite rumours, anti-government protest leaders denied that there are plans for them to march towards the city’s main airport, Suvarnabhumi, to block operations there.

Meanwhile, almost 15,000 police and soldiers will be deployed in Bangkok to prevent violence and clashes, but they will be unarmed and just carry batons and shields, a police spokesperson said.
