Chief executive Wutthiphum Jurangkool said the virus-killing spray was a measure taken in response to Department of Disease Control orders to airlines closely monitor the spread of disease internationally.
Wuhan has had 44 people hospitalised with viral pneumonia recently. No deaths have been reported.
Health authorities there have yet to determine the cause of the disease, but have ruled out any links to common influenza, avian flu, adenovirus and other common respiratory diseases.
Wutthiphum said Nok Air’s precaution “was primarily focused on the health and security of our customers. We will cooperate with the department in every way to prevent any disease.”
