Passengers arriving at Bangkok’s Don Mueang Airport from all countries and territories where Covid-19 has taken hold are now being separated for screening in an isolated area.

Their aircraft are directed to Pier 6, which is separate from international passenger Terminal 1, and on disembarking they undergo a thermal scan and other tests with a medical team.

Passengers on all flights docking at Terminal 1 still have to pass through thermal scanners near Piers 2 and 3.

Anyone showing a high temperature is double-checked and asked where they’ve been and whether they have respiratory issues.

Airport cleaners are pouring on the disinfectant in washrooms and elevators and on luggage trolleys, counters, moving walkways, handrails and other high-contact surfaces in both terminals, and there are sanitising points for washing hands.

Everyone working at the airport has been asked to maintain high person hygiene and wear face masks and gloves while on duty.
