Thousands remain stranded on Samui

Thousands remain stranded on Samui

Samui International Airport is expected to reopen this morning after heavy rains and floods forced the hub to close on Monday and Tuesday, leading thousands of passengers stranded. Bangkok Airways told Travel Daily this morning that conditions on the island were still unsuitable for flight departures, but it was expecting to fly some services into Samui this morning. The airline was forced to cancel some 60 flights yesterday, while more than 2,000 people remain stranded on the flood-hit island. One passenger stuck at Samui airport, Sam Hoys, said on Facebook this morning that conditions there seem the same as yesterday, with “heavy winds and no visibility”. Thai Airways and Firefly also cancelled flights yesterday.
