Thai Airways International on Monday confirmed it will further suspend international routes following the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand's announcement prolonging its ban on inbound and outbound commercial flights until at least June 30.

A resumption in July is being considered, and THAI stressed it will continue to monitor the situation with a view to recommencing commercial flights as soon as it is safe to do so.

The airline said it will take into account events both abroad in terms of lockdowns and potential demand for international air travel should infections continue to fall in other countries.

A schedule will be announced at a later date.

The only international flights THAI is currently running are to bring stranded Thais home and support Thai farmers by delivering their agricultural produce.
