Starting on Monday, 1st March 2021. Thailand’s Civil Aviation Authority has relaxed its COVID-19 restrictions after the stark drop in COVID-19 infection cases throughout the nation. Furthermore, domestic flight regulations have been decreased with in-flight meals now on offer and drinks as well starting Thursday.
Although the rules have been relaxed, precautions and preventative measures are still put in place and must be obeyed by in-flight staff as well as passengers. This includes the wearing of facemasks throughout the flight’s duration. As for international flights, transits are now permitted at airports, which means transits between other flights is now approved and can occur as the rules have now been loosened.
With Samut Sakhon, the epicentre of the recent second wave of COVID infections within the nation being under control and quarantine working as it should, this has boosted confidence in the CCSA (Centre of Covid-19 Situation Administration) to allow for travel to resume to the nation once more. However, those looking to visit Samut Sakhon will have to wait as it is still a red-zone and is not looking to be opened anytime soon. However, places like Phuket as well as Koh Phagan, Koh Samui and Koh Tao are all offering discounts, along with various offers out there for tourists, eager to receive them once again.
