The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has ordered airlines to ensure that foreign travellers have all documents necessary for permission to enter their destinations ahead of issuing boarding passes.

The CAAT announcement covers those tourists who had earlier touched down in one of the so-called “sandbox” zones and were making onward trips after completing their mandatory 14-day stay in the zone and obtaining a clear COVID-19 test result.

Bangkok Airways yesterday began operating Phuket-Samui flights while Nok Air reopened its Phuket-U-Tapao route with the CAAT urging foreign travellers in sandbox areas to contact the airlines before travelling to ensure a smooth journey.
