89 tourists were killed last Sunday when a discount carrier crash-landed at Thailand’s Phuket airport amid heavy rains.
Here is a series of videos related to the crash including one taken by a survivor, a Swede amateur Christopher Marken, just moments after the plane crashed. Christopher too was injured in the crash.
There are reports that many Kolkattans who travel to Bangkok during puja holidays and take the budget airlines’ flights to Phuket have put their plans on hold. It remains to be seen how the things shape up because the Thai capital is an economical and popular destination for Indian tourists.
