Domestic flights may fly at full capacity from 75% previously starting on Saturday, in line with the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions.
Suttipong Kongpool, director-general of the The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand, said on Saturday that he signed on Friday the order on the revised guidelines for airlines operating domestic flights during the Covid-19 situation.
Airlines can also operate more flights since the nighttime curfew was shortened by two hours to 11pm to 3am.
The revisions are in line with the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s decision to relax restrictions.
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Thursday urged the public, businesses and government to cooperate in preparing for the country's reopening to fully vaccinated tourists next month.
The CCSA has also eased additional virus curbs, including a shorter nighttime curfew starting on Saturday.
