On Thursday January 9 Scandinavian Airlines hosted this month’s Nordic networking event at Admirals Pub in Bangkok.
On that occasion the Director and General Manager of SAS Southeast Asia Niels Henrik Hansen said goodbye to the community associated with the Nordic Chambers of Commerce who attended the event.
Not only was he leaving his job in Thailand, he also announced the official closing of the SAS’s Bangkok office. It means that SAS in the future will only by represented in Thailand through an agent office and from the regional office in Tokyo.
The shutdown has been carried out in stages since last year and the last employee has already left the office. Luckily most staff members have already found new jobs elsewhere in Bangkok, he said.
SAS flights had served passengers between Bangkok and Scandinavia for more than 60 years, and continues to offer routes to and from Scandinavia. SAS will be operating up to 4 flights a week Bangkok-Copenhagen until end of March 2014.
Niels Henrik Hansen himself takes up a new position back in Denmark.
