CCSA explains the need for international flight ban extension

(NNT) - The CCSA spokesperson has revealed that the extension of the international flight ban is to prevent the possibility of a further viral outbreak coming from foreign countries, and suggested passengers with urgent travel needs contact a Royal Thai embassy.

Doctor Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesperson for the Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration or CCSA said today that CCSA apologized for the inconvenience of flight limitations.

Meanwhile, the extension of the Thai ban has affected many Thai people in foreign countries who bought tickets to fly back to Thailand from 1st May. The government then extended the ban to 31st May to prevent the possibility of a new outbreak from foreign countries. The center also suggested Thai people who have urgent travel needs, contact the Royal Thai Embassy in foreign countries for assistance.

The spokesperson also mentioned the measures that businesses must take if they are allowed to reopen. Whether the reopening happens or not, every sector must follow the emergency decree and its measures to prevent a viral spread, such as by social distancing, and wearing a face mask, with regular cleaning and disinfection.

Dr. Taweesilp lastly stated that we all have to adapt to a new lifestyle in which people have to implement the measures on a daily basis. People have to wear face masks and keep their distance from others as a matter of routine. These actions will help Thailand in getting rid of the infection faster and avoiding other impositions.

THAI denies flights will be cancelled for 4 months after May 31
Thai Airways International (THAI) on Wednesday (April 29) dismissed rumours that its operations will be suspended for another four months from the end of May.

THAI intends to immediately resume international flights as soon as the Covid-19 situation improves, and services have not been suspended for another four months as has been reported on social media, Squadron Leader Soradej Namruangsri said in his capacity as the airline’s executive vice president for operations. Soradej is also acting executive vice president of THAI’s corporate strategy and sustainable development.

THAI has temporarily suspended operations from April 1 to May 31 in line with measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Lockdowns in many countries, Thailand’s state of emergency and the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand’s decision to ban all passenger flights until May 31 has put an end to international travel for the time being.
