Thai Airways International (THAI) has flown home 250 more Thais from the United Kingdom and Ireland, Squadron Leader Anirut Saengrit, director of the airline’s Operations Control Centre, said today (June 16).

He said this is the second time the airline has cooperated with the Foreign Affairs Ministry to bring Thais in the UK and Ireland back home.

“THAI’s TG917 cargo flight with 250 Thais departed from London’s Heathrow Airport on June 14 and arrived at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport on June 15,” Anirut said.

“Staff from THAI and related authorities teamed up to assist the 250 passengers, also seeing to it that they maintained social distancing while measuring their temperature and providing hand-sanitising gel,” he said.

Anirut said the airline has instructed its flight attendants to take measures to contain the spread of Covid-19 while performing their duties.

“THAI always stands ready to organise special flights to bring home our citizens stranded overseas,” he added.
