A Samui residents’ association gathered at the Rama V monument on the island yesterday to air grievances about Bangkok Airways.
Chief of the complaints from the group of Bo Phut residents was the cost of flights. They said when compared to other routes on similar planes with similar services in Thailand Bangkok Airways were clearly 2 to 3 times more expensive than they should be.
They called on the airline to lower their prices.
In addition the group said that people in the area were suffering from ever worsening noise pollution and vibration from aircraft. The most serious issue in this regard was the affect on students and teaching in schools in the area.
Daily News reported that the group were headed by a former navy man who read out the list of complaints.
Following this the group dispersed.
