Flights to red zones banned

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) on Sunday issued a ban on commercial domestic flights to destinations in provinces hardest-hit by Covid-19 or the dark red zones.

The order was signed by CAAT director Suthipong Kongpool in response to the latest stepped-up lockdown measures.

The flight ban, which goes into effect from Wednesday until further notice, applies to destinations in the dark red zone provinces which have expanded from 10, including Bangkok and surrounding areas, in the earlier lockdown order to 13 on Sunday. However, exceptions have been made for domestic flights to the "sandbox" provinces.
