Bangkok Airways officially signed off as it grounded all services and closed its three owned and managed airports. The airline posted has promised to be back flying after its self-isolation on 1 May.
In a message to its customers, the airline’s president, Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, said: “Even though we cannot foresee how or when this crisis will end, I strongly believe that eventually we will get through and come out stronger than in the past. We will continue to do everything in our power to manage the current situation and be more prepared than ever when lives return to normal once again.”
The president noted the airline has never taken a break for 52 years or almost 19,000 days serving all passengers from its heart. “But 7-30 April, we need to stop to get going and take a break in order to get back gracefully,” he added.
