“For those holding tickets on THAI past the October change will need to contact the airline for rerouting,” Bill Barnett, Managing Director of C9 Hotelworks, posted in a release today (Sept 8).

“Hong Kong continues to be an important connect for many foreign property owners who see the favourable door-to-door travel time as a substantial demand generator,” Mr Barnett said.

Currently Cathay Dragon and AirAsia also fly between the two destinations, he added. (See post here.)
