Low-cost carrier Nok Air is suspending its direct flights between Bangkok, Thailand and Guwahati City, India for nearly three months.

Nok Air announced the temporary suspension of said flight over the weekend, citing operational reasons behind the decision.

The airline said that operations will resume on April 12, 2020.

It can be learned that Nok Air launched the Bangkok-Guwahati flight only in September last year, with a frequency of twice a week. The aircraft departs from Don Muang International Airport, which is the hub for all budget carriers arriving and departing from Thailand.

However, India-based budget carrier SpiceJet suspended its operations between Guwahati and Dhaka in Bangladesh amid the low passenger volume for the route.

Before the cancellation, SpiceJet had first reduced the flight frequency to only twice a week, but demand remained low at that time, prompting for the immediate cancellation.

At present, the Guwahati airport is accommodating only two international flights from Druk Airlines, one bound for Singapore and the other for Paro, Bhutan.
