The number of domestic flights at Chiang Mai airport has risen more than 50% since Covid-19 restrictions began to ease.
Chiang Mai airport director Amornrak Xumsai Na Ayudhaya said on Thursday that the number of daily flights so far this month has reached 68, up from a daily average of 40 in June.
The number of passengers is also expected to be at least 50% higher than the previous month, which saw 4,000-5,000 passengers per day, the airport director said.
AirAsia are planning to offer flights between Hua Hin – Chiang Mai and Hua Hin – Udon Thani every Friday and Sunday from 7th August 2020.
Airlines have mostly begun flying major domestic routes such as Chiang Mai – Bangkok, but the northern capital also has connections to U-Tapao, Hat Yai, Ubon Ratchathani and Udon Thani.
Mr Amornrak said, although the number of passengers has increased, the airport has strictly abided by public health measures, the wearing of face masks, social distancing and cleanliness at its facilities to prevent the spread of COVID 19.
Security personnel have conducted frequent patrols around the passenger terminal and surrounding areas. Airlines have also cooperated in watching out for foreign objects and debris within the airport’s flying zone to boost passenger confidence in their safety, he said.
