Passengers should strictly follow the advices of the officers and should spare the time to the airport for convenience and safety to everyone.

- Passengers may carry alcohol gel hand sanitizers in their carry-on baggage. Each passenger is limited to 350ml per package. The total net quantity including other gels, sprays and liquid shall not exceed 1,000ml

Passengers should keep a distance of at least one meter from other people or follow the specified airport signs.

While AoT Phuket is responsible for the Phuket airport areas only, The Phuket News reminds readers that health regulations outside the airport by order of the Phuket Governor remain in effect.

Of note, regarding wearing face masks, all people in Phuket must wear a face mask at all times when in a public area. This includes when people leave the airport. The fine for not wearing a face mask is up to B20,000. 

Also, The Phuket News has yet to receive a reply from officials to confirm whether people leaving Phuket by the airport must register with the local authorities first and be issued a “Fit to Travel” document confirming they have been screened for the virus and that they have observed a 14-day self-quarantine before their date of travel – as is curerntly required of any people approved to leave Phuket by road.
