Thai Air Asia has suspended its services from Hua Hin airport due to the new wave of coronavirus infections in Thailand.

 

In an announcement made on Sunday, the airline said flights will be suspended from 15-31 January 2021.

 

The flights connecting Hua Hin with Chiang Mai and Udon Thani were launched in August 2020, with the airline stating the routes would initially be operational until at least 26 March 2021. 

 

However, Sunday’s announcement is likely to add some uncertainty regarding whether the  flights will fully resume at all. As recently as last week, it was not possible to book flights beyond 26 March 2021.

 

The temporary suspension of the flights will come as a blow to Hua Hin’s tourism industry, which like many places, has been left decimated by the  COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

It is also a further blow for Hua Hin airport which after January 15th will not be operating a single commercial flight, with its only international flight to Kuala Lumpur unable to resume after Thailand placed restrictions on inbound tourism after the first wave of coronavirus infections last year.

The bigger question is why have they not suspended the flights as well from Bangkok.  Just as many or more infected Covid people here in BKK.  Tried to change the flights scheduled for the 26th and the system will not allow it as the dates I pick are in April.  When I try to get a Credit Account added so it can be used later it is denied as the flights are still scheduled.  Argh....
