The ban on public transportation out of “dark red” zones has been lifted. Following the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s decision to ease the restrictions, both the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand and the state-run Transport Company announced domestic flights and interprovincial bus services will resume on Wednesday.

While domestic travel from the “high risk” provinces, like Bangkok, there are some restrictions, according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson, Natapanu Nopakun, who gives the CCSA report in English. Transportation services will need to operate at 75% of its maximum capacity. Passengers are required to wear masks at all times and the consumption of food and drinks is not allowed.

“According to the Airports of Thailand, or AOT, domestic travel will resume with some restrictions. Air passengers will still have to comply with the various restrictions imposed by destination airports… from the use of some tracking mobile apps to full vaccination certificates to show about the Covid-19 test results of the passenger.”

The Transport Company will resume with eight bus routes in the North, 10 routes to the Northeast and East, and eight routes to the South.

Thai Vietjet also confirmed its resumption of domestic flights to and from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport starting Wednesday and says its even celebrating the lift of restrictions with “Welcome Back to the Sky” special fares starting at 499 baht. In a press release, Thai Vietjet said passengers will need to show proof of either a negative result from a RT-PCR test or an antigen test.

Passengers need to have negative Covid-19 RT-PCR Test or Antigen Test result valid no more than 72 hours before flight departure time and to strictly comply with regulation of arrival destinations.

Thai Vietjet’s special for flights from September 1 to November 30 ends tomorrow. The promotional tickets are available at www.vietjetair.com.
