Bangkok Airways has confirmed the delay of planned new
route launches, temporarily reduced flights to some destinations,
and will close all of its passenger lounges and F&B kiosks from 8
January 2021 until further notice.
The changes follow the current outbreak of COVID19
in Thailand, which has prompted some cities in the country to
reintroduce certain restrictions:
The airline has revised the launch date of the
following three new routes:

launched on 1 April 2021.

(round-trip) will be launched on 1 June 2021.
Bangkok Airways has also temporarily
suspended the following routes from 8-31 January 2021:
– Bangkok – Sukhothai
– Bangkok – Trat (round-trip).

PG’s flights to the following destinations have
– Bangkok – Samui (round-trip) from 8 January – 28 February
