Bangkok to europe flights cancelled

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

On BBC news now thai airways has cancelled all european flights due to situation between pakistan and india.
Expect high prices on other carriers not overflying the danger zone

Don’t want a repeat of the downing of an airline like in Ukraine/Russia.

At mo they can still be booked online on some sites. this could be good. they will have to reroute you at a time and route to suit you, but you will not get any compensation under EU261 because this really is beyone their control.

You could still try via Middle East, or Hong Kong. Those all overfly different areas.

You cannot get to the middle east from here without overflying pakistan. Roiutes via china are ok, they use chinese airspce. Read the BBC story. Other airlines are rerouting around but tta means fliybs over iran and extra refuelling stops for scoot which goes non stop to athens fro sgn

Weird that they close the whole pakistani airspace and the indian is operating normally except for kashmir.
I mean Karachi is like 1500km away from the area where they are fighting.
