Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) announced a rearrangement of its passenger flight routes. According to the spread of Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19) since April 2020, the company has cancelled its scheduled flight operations and only operated some flights and repatriation flights.
However, the Covid-19 pandemic has persisted until today. Therefore it is critical for THAI to operate to destinations with the highest level of safety for both passenger and cargo flights. Commencing on July 1, 2021, THAI is working in support of the Government’s Phuket Sandbox campaign, operating from key European destinations, namely London, Frankfurt, Paris and Zurich directly to Phuket.
THAI has operated all flights in response to the Notification of the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand on Guidelines for Airport Operators and Air Operators for Domestic Flight Operating during Covid-19 Pandemic Situation.
To comply with the measures of the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), the following routes have been scheduled:
1) Routes which have been temporarily suspended (only passenger flights) until September 30, 2021, details of which are as per Enclosure 1.
2) Routes which have been resumed (only passenger flights) from July 1 – September 30, 2021, details of which are as per Enclosure 2.
