CEO of Nok Airlines Public Company Limited, Mr. Wuttiphum Chulangkul shared that the airline has resumed flights across Thailand, except for the Chiang Mai – Udon Thani and Ubon Ratchathani – Chiang Mai routes

The airline used to have an estimated 3,700 passengers per day and currently serve 7,000 passengers daily. However, Nok Air stated that despite the large drop in passengers, they continue to recover slowly, according to Khaosod


More international flights in the future


The budget airline has even expressed plans to add more routes to the Philippines and Malaysia. With international flights being a thing of the past due to Covid-19, Nok Air’s announcement hinting at multilateral travel is surely hinting at a light at the end of the tunnel.
