His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn will pilot a charity flight to the southern province of Nakhon Si Thammarat on December 21, 2013 to raise fund for an educational foundation under the royal patronage.

Deputy Spokesperson of the Prime Minister’s Office Lieutenant Sunisa Lertpakhawat announced at a press conference after the weekly Cabinet meeting yesterday that the Government will play host to the royal charity flight which will have HRH the Crown Prince as the first pilot.

The flight will depart from Bangkok on December 21, 2013 to Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, where His Royal Highness will attend a merit making ceremony at Wat Phra Maha Thart Monastery.

Tickets for the flight will cost 500,000 baht per seat and are expected to raise a total of 50 million baht in the project.
