Brits continue to search for Thai summer holidays despite unrest

Summer flight searches to Thailand have not dropped despite FCO warnings, according to Skyscanner. Civil unrest and protests have broken out on the island and the British FCO has advised Brits not to travel there unless essential. But data from Skyscanner, a flight website, has revealed that people are continuing to search for flights to Bangkok for travel in June, July and August. “So far, we have not seen any significant drop in interest for summer travel to Thailand since the Bangkok protests began. We suspect that many travellers believe the unrest will be over by summer, or are unaware of the situation altogether, which has been partly overshadowed in the news by the volcano disruption,” said Skyscanner Co-Founder and Market Development Director Barry Smith.
