In view of the fact that residents in northern Thailand traditionally release paper sky lanterns (khom loi) during celebrations such as the upcoming Loy Krathong festival and New Year’s Eve, Thai Airways says it will be making some changes to its schedule for safety reasons.

The airlines’ Vice President of Aviation Security and Standards, Pratana Patanasiri, says safety considerations mean cancelling or rescheduling a number of flights from Bangkok to Chiang Mai during the Loy Krathong, November 11 and 12, and again on December 31 during New Year celebrations.

The Nation reports that the affected flights are as follows…

1. Roundtrip flights from Bangkok-Chiangmai on 11-12 November 2019 and 31 December 2019 are cancelled

1/1 Flight TG 120: Bangkok-Chiangmai on 11-12 November 2019 and 31 December 2019
