UAE tourism traffic to Thailand remains unchanged

April 14- Despite rioting in  issued by the Emirates, travel to the country from the UAE remains unaffected, said industry sources on Tuesday. However, a significant decrease in tourists from the UAE is expected if the ‘red shirt’ protests in Thailand continue
"We have had no cancellations or rescheduling of flights since the protests started last week in Bangkok," Manu Mehrotra, General Manager of Al Tayer Travel Agency, said. "However, some are maintaining a wait-and-watch approach before making future travel plans."
Mehrotra added that while the situation won’t be as bad as the decline in tourism to Thailand last year, it may still be a possibility. "Should the rioting continue into the summer when schools shut for holidays, we could anticipate a 20 and 25 per cent drop in travellers."
Meanwhile, flights between Dubai and Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport appear to be operating normally, with Thai Airways confirming that all flights are on schedule. "Thai Airways is operating all flights and there is no cause of concern at the Bangkok airport. The rioting is contained in neighbourhoods far away,” said a spokesperson of the airline. .
