PHUKET: The island will reportedly be doubling its weekly flights to and from St Petersburg, Russia, due to a sharp increase in demand, a national-level government spokesperson said.

During last week’s Thailand-Russia aviation conference held by the Ministry of Transportation in Bangkok, officials agreed to increase the overall weekly flights between Thailand and Russia from 42 to 70, Deputy Spokesman Maj Gen Sunsern Kaewkumnerd told The Nation.

“Moreover, Russian representatives have also requested to redirect a daily Chiang Mai flight to Krabi,” he added.

Capt. Vasili Borodin: I will live in Pattaya. And I will marry a round Thai woman and raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me. And I will have a pickup truck... maybe even a "recreational vehicle." And drive from province to province. Do they let you do that?

Captain Ramius: I suppose.

Capt. Vasili Borodin: No papers?

Captain Ramius: No papers, province to province.

Capt. Vasili Borodin: Well then, in winter I will live in... Phuket. Actually, I think I will need two wives.

Captain Ramius: Oh, at least.
