Speaking to the press at Phuket Airport Office, K. Udom explained that One-Two-Go had already offered up to 50,000 baht for each survivor’s clothing and other immediate basic needs.

“We are insured up to US$300 million… We are currently working on the documents and fine-checking the contracts,” said K. Udom.

Families of Thais who died in the crash will also receive 100,000 baht per victim to cover funeral costs.

K. Udom explained that One-Two-Go has decreased its daily schedule by 10 domestic flights a day, down to 30. “We want our staff to feel relaxed and not to worry too much about what happened. I think after two or three weeks, our services will be as normal again,” he said.
