The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) on Wednesday (April 15) decided to further extend the ban on passenger flights to the Kingdom from 00.01am of April 19 to 11.59pm of April 30.

The CAAT had initially prohibited all aircraft from entering Thailand from April 4 to 18. The move is to stem the Covid-19 contagion.

The order, signed by CAAT director-general Chula Sukamanop, exempts state or military aircraft, emergency landings, technical landings without any passengers disembarking, humanitarian aid and medical or relief flights, repatriation flights and cargo aircraft.

Passengers or staff on the exempted flights will be subject to a 14-day quarantine in Thailand according to the regulations announced by Department of Disease Control.
