Busy in BKK – dust off the planes, Thais are travelling again! VIDEO

BKK is busy, well, compared to the last 10 months in Thailand. Bangkok’s two airports were closed as part of the 2020 ‘lockdown’ and only reopened at the end of May after about 8 weeks, and only to domestic traffic (with some limited international repatriation, cargo, and a few passenger flights). Over the past 10 months Tim has been flying weekly and was surprised today to see a major uptick in passengers moving around the airport.

Next week is Songkran and the traffic will be even busier with bumper passenger movement expected for this year’s extended Songkran (Thai New Year) holidays.
