Some bad news for travellers going to Thailand from the United Kingdom as today British Airways released news that they will be suspending flights between the UK and Bangkok between late March and 30 October 2021.
It is not only Thailand that is going to be affected by the changes made by British Airways but also 12 other routes. From the same time as Bangkok also Charleston and Pittsburgh in the US, Calgary – Canada, Durban – South Africa, Dammam – Saudi Arabia routes will be stoped.
Also culled from the summer schedule are: Lima, Peru; Muscat, Oman; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Osaka, Japan; and Seoul, South Korea.
Beginning 24 April, flights to Seychelles will be axed, along with services to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. However, a “short ad hoc” service to the latter will continue during Hajj, the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, which takes place in July.
The changes affect the Gulf of Thailand destinations as the Phuket scuba diving high season is between November and May each year. So when Phuket and Phi Phi island is coming into their high season the flights will have resumed back to the original schedule.
