Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Thai Airways passengers, flying from ‘at risk’ destinations, now require health certificates

Thai Airways is now demanding passengers, departing on their planes from China, Italy and South Korea, to Thailand, provide the national airline with health certificates before they can receive their boarding passes. The announcement was the airlines’ latest reaction to the growing coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.

Here’s The Thaiger’s daily Coronavirus update HERE.

The new compliance relates to Thai flights out of….

• Seoul and Busan in South Korea

• Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Shanghai in China

• Milan and Rome in Italy

The Thai Airways president Sumeth Damrongchaitham made the announcement last night. The Facebook post says that the passengers taking flights from those three “at risk” countries must present the health certificates to prove they “are free of the disease”.

Thai Airways’ staff have been instructed to issue boarding passes only to passengers with a valid and recent certificate.

“This was in compliance with an instruction from the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand.”
