Bangkok Airways, a Thai carrier, has temporarily increased the number of flights on its Bangkok-Naypyidaw route to meet demand ahead of the annual summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean), to be held in the Burmese capital later this month.

An official from the airline told The Bangkok Post that the number of flights on the route had been increased from five to seven per week from May 5-30. The normal schedule of five flights a week will resume when the Asean summit ends.
