The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has announced that the ban on incoming passenger flights to Thailand will be extended until April 30th at 11.59 pm.
The ban was initially implemented on April 4th after a group of returning Thais refused to go into quarantine upon arrival at Suvarnabhumi Airport.
The ban was then further extended on just two days later, on April 6th, until April 18th.
Now, the CAAT has imposed the ban on incoming flights until the end of the month to come in line with the timeline for the state of emergency currently in place nationwide.
The extended ban includes the following orders:
- All international passenger flights to Thailand are canceled and will not be given permission to land until after April 30th.
- The ban makes exceptions for state or military aircraft, emergency landings, technical landings without disembarkation, humanitarian, medical or relief flights, repatriation flights, and cargo flights.
- All passengers who disembark from flights in category two will be subject to mandatory screenings for covid-19 and placed into state quarantine for 14 days.
