    Thailand bans all incoming flights for 3 days

    BANGKOK (NNT) - Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport last night was filled with confusion as some passengers arriving in Thailand claimed they are unaware of the quarantine regulation, where they must be quarantined in a government facility for 14 days on arrival. Due to this incident, the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has announced a temporary ban on all flight arrivals until 6 April.


    The CAAT’s Director General Chula Sukmanop said they have imposed a temporary ban on all incoming commercial passenger flights to all airports in Thailand, in order to support containment measures for the spread of COVID-19.


    This ban is now in effect, and will last until 6 April. Certain flights are exempted from the ban, namely state and military aircraft, emergency and technical landings where passengers are not allowed to disembark, humanitarian flights providing support for medical professionals or those affected by COVID-19, approved flights for repatriation missions and cargo flights.


    Passengers whose flight has already departed before this announcement went in effect will be permitted entry, but they will be subject to a 14-day quarantine according to the Communicable Diseases Act and the Emergency Decree.

    Thailand bans flight arrivals after returnees throw tantrum over quarantine


    The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has prohibited all aircraft from entering Thailand for three days after some 100 Thais, who landed at Suvarnabhumi Airport on Friday (April 3) evening, refused to go to quarantine facilities in Bangkok and Chonburi, claiming they were not notified in advance of the procedures.


    The CAAT issued the order a few hours after the incident on Friday. The order signed by CAAT director-general Chula Sukmanop cites Sections 27 and 28 of Air Navigation Act BE 2497 to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

    According to the order, all aircraft carrying passengers will be prohibited from entering Thailand from 0.01am on April 4 until 11.59pm on April 6, with exception for state or military aircraft, emergency landing, technical landing of aircraft without passengers, humanitarian aid, medical and relief flights, repatriation flights and cargo aircraft.



    The order stipulates that all passengers who had embarked from airports before the order came into effect must be under restrictions regarding communicable disease prevention under Section 9 of Emergency Decree on Public Administration BE 2548, and must be held in quarantine for 14 days.
