The serving of in-flight food and drinks, except for emergency, had been prohibited by the CAAT since December last year in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19.
The CAAT had also prohibited the distribution of newspapers, magazines or any pamphlets to passengers in-flight except those related to safety, in order to reduce touching surfaces that could spread the virus.
“Airlines still need to strictly follow Covid-19 preventive measures, including having passengers and staff wearing face masks at all times, except when eating or drinking,” said CAAT chairman Suttipong Kongpool.
“Along with allowing in-flight meals, souvenirs are allowed to be sold to passengers on board as well.”
The announcement will be effective immediately.
