I used to fly with a lot of internal airlines with work. This service was one of the best - I will be sad if it has gone.

I have booked a flight for next month.

Spoke to a couple of people lately and they had their flights cancelled with not even 24 hours notice.

I had friends over last December and their flight to HH was cancelled then. They were told "technical problems" but another friend here in Thailand who keeps an eye on business affairs Asian sent me a newspaper article saying that the airline was already in financial trouble. It had something to do with the way they'd financed themselves and they needed, by government decree, to refinance. That was stretching them a long way.
They weren't the only low cost carrier in Thailand to be hit by the new regulations.

Could you advise how you booked as we need to travel to CM, we planned to go later this month but could not book on line, I looked up for next month and again see no flights scheduled. Doesn't matter which date I select there are no flights.

If you're in Hua Hin, just nip down to the airport - painless and efficient.

[Edit] Before I realised I could book at the airport, I used to phone them +66 (2) 551-6111. Payment was at 7-11 - again good English and efficient. Confirmation sent by SMS.

Yes and of you read my post they could not even advise if they had a flight to CM. I would still like to know how Midsman booked, although an airline that has no functioning email, an inadequate web site, is under investigation by the CAA maybe not an airline I would fly with.

I'm sorry, I was only trying to help. You asked a question, and I answered it. For what it's worth, if you read back through this thread you will see that I was unable to book using their website. However, this is Thailand, and most Thai websites are shite. It does not mean the service is equally as bad.

I hope you enjoy your your trip using bus, train, car or air via Bangkok. :?

We have decided to go by road, either bus or a leisurely drive.

Hello can anybody inform me if Kan Airlines routing Hua Hin (HHQ) - Chiang Mai (CNX) still flying nowadays? Few months ago I have bought the ticket via their website, and recently I check their website but all flight comes with N/A. This makes me nervous. What is going on with this Airlines?

jokerbokek,

That is a question many of us are wondering about. Nobody seems to have a definitive answer. I have to go out that way tomorrow or the day after, so will call into the airport to ask (unless somebody can answer your question before). Look back on here tomorrow or the day after and I will find out, and post my findings.
