Vietnam Airlines resumes service to Bangkok
Vietnam Airlines (VNA) Saturday resumed its service to international Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok as the Thai airport recommenced full operations after a long shutdown due to antigovernment protesters.
Twenty stranded Vietnamese passengers were brought home on the first flight that landed in Vietnam around 2 p.m.
Two other flights, one from Hanoi and the other from Ho Chi Minh City, are scheduled to land at Suvarnabhumi Airport later in the day.
VNA chief representative Nguyen Khoi Nguyen in Bangkok, said two regular Vietnam Airlines flights – from Hanoi and HCMC to Bangkok – will take off as usual thereafter.
Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, one of Asia's largest, resumed full operations on Friday after a 10-day closure due to the political crisis.
