According to a news published in Thailand Business News, the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has cited the possibility of extending the international flight ban, due to concerns over the global COVID-19 situation.
The director-general of the CAAT said the recovery of Thailand’s airline industry, which is expected to be revived by the travel bubble programme by August, may be delayed as travel bubble program partners including China, Japan and South Korea have recently faced a recurrence of their coronavirus outbreak.
The development is expected to delay the tourism scenes until the situation improves in these nations.
The director-general said the kingdom should focus more on its domestic airline business as the government earlier gave a green light to local flights and allowed the majority of businesses to reopen.
