The transport minister has asked airlines with flights to the flood-stricken provinces in the South to lower air fares to help relieve the trouble of affected people.

Akhom Term-Pittaya-Paisit, the transport minister, said he has invited six airlines which fly to the southern provinces with destinations in flooded provinces for a meeting to seek their cooperation in helping the people affected by floods.

Invited to the meeting were Thai Airways International, Thai Smile Air, Bangkok Air, Thai Lion Air, Nok Air, and VietJet Air.

He said he asked them to launch promotion campaign that will offer special prices for passengers to destinations in flooded provinces.

Besides, he said he also asked them to lower air fares for normal booking, which are usually charged higher than flights booked in advance.

In response to the minister’s request, Thai Smile Air acting chief executive Voranet Laphrabang said the airline has flights to Krabi, Surat Thani, Hat Yai and Narathiwat which are stricken by floods.

He said his airline is ready to offer special price of 999 baht for a single trip to passengers .

Tickets can be booked from today at www.thaismileair.com or at Smile Call Center 1181 or 02-118-8888 until January 15.

The tickets are valid for travel from today until January 20.
