- +

Airports of Thailand executives have called an urgent meeting following reports that Singapore Airlines will cancel 19 flights to Bangkok from mid-January to late February due to the political turmoil in the capital. 

Suvarnabhumi airport general manager Rawewan Netrakavesna said airport executives would meet on Sunday to discuss the impact of the anti-government protests, which will be escalated following the People's Democratic Reform Committee's "Bangkok Shutdown", led by former Democrat MP Suthep Thaugsuban, on Jan 13.

Ms Rawewan said airport executives would then meet representatives of the Association of Thai Travel Agents and airline operators tomorrow to assess the situation and prepare necessary measures to deal with unexpected incidents and impacts from the demonstrations.
