Bangkok Airways has cancelled all flights to and from Samui airport on Friday, citing passengers' safety, as tropical storm Pabuk moves towards the southern region.

The airline said on Thursday it decided to suspend the service on Friday in the face of expected gusty winds and heavy rain in the Gulf of Thailand brought by the storm.

Passengers could rebook the cancelled flights free of charge, or contact call centre at 1771 or 02-270-6698.

Bangkok Airways is the main carrier serving Koh Samui in Surat Thani.

Local residents and tourists on the island are prepared for the storm, which will make landfall in Nakhon Si Thammarat on Friday night.
