Ban on flights to Thailand extended to end of April
April 15, 2020

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has decided to extend the ban on all incoming flights, with certain exceptions, from April 19th to the end of this month.

The ban was initially imposed on April 3rd to curb the spread of COVID-19, which could be brought into the country by some passengers who, while infected, might have passed pre-flight health screenings.

CAAT director Chula Sukmanop cited the still worrisome coronavirus situation in Thailand for the need to extend the ban.

Under the ban, no flights are allowed to land in Thailand except for military aircraft on diplomatic missions, emergency landings, technical landings without disembarkation, those on humanitarian missions, those for medical, relief or repatriation purposes and cargo aircraft.

Any passengers who are allowed to disembark will be subject to a 14-day quarantine at state facilities.

Incoming flights ban extended to May 31

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) on Monday decided to extend the ban on all incoming flights for another month, on continuing worries about the coronavirus pandemic.

The aviation regulator announced the extension ahead of the scheduled expiry date, April 30, on the grounds that the situation was worsening. The ban was also in support of the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration's battle to control the pandemic outbreak in Thailand, it said.

The flight ban exempts state and military aircraft, ands aircraft making an emergency landing or a technical landing without disembarkation. It also spares humanitarian aid, medical and relief flights as well as repatriation and cargo flights.
