Thai Airways (THAI) has announced it will operate two special flights from Frankfurt to Phuket this week and in May, as Thailand eases travel restrictions and welcomes back European tourists.

The two flights from Germany will be seen as a test for the Phuket Tourism Sandbox initiative, a trial scheme to reintroduce fully inoculated tourists to the island from July 1.

Businesses in tourism-reliant Phuket have been badly hit by the year-long Covid-19 travel ban.

The TG921 flights will depart Frankfurt at 2.45pm (local time) on April 2 (this Friday) and May 7 and arrive in Phuket at 7.10am the next day.
