Jun 09, Colombo: Thailand's budget carrier, Thai AirAsia (TAA), will reduce the number of flights serving the Bangkok-Colombo route due to low demand.

Thai AirAsia will reduce its daily flights to Colombo to three flights a week from next Thursday as the demand is lower than expected, the CEO of the low-cost-carrier Tassapon Bijleveld has said.

The CEO has described the measure as a realignment to increase the service on routes with higher demand.

TAA is the first low-cost-carrier to serve Bangkok-Colombo route which commenced on March 1. However, the route is served by several airlines including Sri Lanka's national carrier SriLankan Airlines Thai Airways and Cathay Pacific.

After the reduction TAA's Bangkok-Colombo service will be Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

TAA is the only low-cost airline operating both domestic and international flights from Thailand's Suvarnabhumi Airport.
