Phuket airport will reopen for business today after receiving the green light on Friday from the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT).
Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said before the CCSA meeting on Friday that there was no reason for the shutdown of Phuket airport to continue as the province had seen no new COVID 19 infections for 19 days. This came after the reopening of Suvarnabhumi airport and other major airports for domestic flights.
