MAS, AirAsia flights to Thailand not affected by floods

The floods in Thailand do not affect the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and AirAsia flights to the land of the white elephants.

The spokesperson from both the airline companies, when contacted by Bernama today, said that so far, there had been no cancellation of flights to Thailand because of the floods.

They said the reason being that both the airline companies do not fly to the Don Muang Airport, which is closed since Tuesday when its landing strip was submerged in flood water.

Instead, the MAS and AirAsia flights used the Suvarnabhumi Airport, which is not affected by the floods.

The closure of the Don Muang Airport, which is the second largest airport in Bangkok, has resulted in many flights to be delayed.

The floods which hit Thailand are said to be the worst in 60 years.
