Aviation authority extends ban on flights by another 12 days
The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) on Monday (April 6) decided to further extend the ban on passenger flights to the Kingdom from 00.01am of April 7 to 11.59pm of April 18.
CAAT had initially prohibited all aircraft from entering Thailand for three days, from April 4 to 6.
The move is to stem the Covid-19 contagion.
The order, signed by CAAT director-general Chula Sukamanop, exempts state or military aircraft from landing, emergency landings, technical landings without any passengers disembarking, humanitarian aid and medical or relief flights, repatriation flights and cargo aircraft.
Passengers en route to Thailand prior to this announcement will be subject to a 14-day quarantine in Thailand.
