Thai Airways International PCL (THAI) plans to end its Phuket-Hat Yai route, as the service is not popular among passengers, according to president of the Phuket Travel Association.



Pattanapong Aekvanit warned that the cancellation of the route between two major tourist attractions might affect tourism in the region, and the government plan to develop Phuket to become the southern aviation hub.



He said that enterpreneurs in Hat Yai and Phuket had asked THAI to put off the plan until next month as they would launch package tours to attract more tourists and to help increase the number of passengers.



The airline has reduced its flights between the two destinations from two flights daily to one, and now it is planning to cut the route due to sluggish demand leading to a sharp drop in passengers.



However, Phuket Air still operates the same route four flights a week. (TNA)
