Etihad Airways reducing flights to Thailand.

Recommended Posts

Seems Etihad airways are reducing the number of flights to both Bangkok and Phuket from Abu Dhabi.

Bangkok is going to 2 daily from 3 daily and phuket is going from 1 daily to 4 weekly.

Abu Dhabi – Bangkok 03MAY20 – 24JUN20 Reduce from 3 to 2 daily, EY406/405 cancelled (Except 31MAY20 – 06JUN20, EY402/401).

Abu Dhabi – Phuket 05MAY20 – 25JUN20 Reduce from 7 weekly to 4 weekly (Day x246; Except variations for the week of 31MAY20).

I have flown with etihad to Thailand on a number of occasions. The first time being 2008 and the last 2018. In my opinion they were great to begin with but over time they have reduced there level of service onboard.

Pherphas its maintenance season for there aircraft or low bookings to thailand in general that as caused the reduction in flights.

Usual low season reductions in capacity.

Could be. But in the past they had 4 daily flights to BKK and reduced it to 3. They scrapped the mid morning flight.

Middle eastern travelers to thailand is down almost 5% in 2019 to thailand.  European travellers is up 0.6% but russian and eastern European countries account for the increase in that. UK travellers were up surprisingly.

Hi,

There may be a decline because of the virus spreading, in small numbers, to Thailand. The virus has potential to cause a serious recession worldwide if it is not contained.

Hi,

I remember most the Chinese had masks on when I was passing through  Don Mueang at the time. Neither I, or other falang had any.
