More than 200 German tourists have arrived home after being trapped in Thailand for several days due to ongoing blockades by protestors at the Bangkok airport, travel agency Thomas Cook said on Monday.


Some 217 tourists who had booked trips through Thomas Cook, Neckermann Reisen, and Last Minute missed their return flights because of the protests, but were flown out of other nearby airports, the agency said.

Many travel agencies have cancelled trips until this coming Friday as Thai activists continue to block the airport to gain attention for their opposition to the current government. But when possible, tourists from Germany will be rerouted on alternative connections such as Phuket, a spokesperson for Meier’s Weltreisen, a Frankfurt travel agency said.
