The Phuket office of the Ministry of Interior announced the warning on its official COIVD-19 information Facebook page, ’Phuket Anti-COVID19’ late this afternoon (Apr 16).

The post noted that flights by Vietjet, Thai Lion Air, Thai Smile and AirAsia were affected.

The post also included images of seating plans of the flights showing where the affected person was sitting (see gallery above) so people know how close they were to a person now believed to be infected with COVID-19, though no explanation of how serious the threat of infection was given.

The flights reported also included one flight from Chiang Mai to Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok on Apr 10.

The flights of concern were reported as:

The photos are clearly showing that per 5 rows on both sides only 1 window seat can be safely occupied. That means 2 seats out of 30 to avoid spreading possible Covid-19 infections while flying from Red Zone to Red Zone.

When they start fast testing/swapping prior the flight take off? Ask people to be in airport 3 hrs prior departure, and test them before check in. Don't make domestic flying unsafe with all these Red Zone provinces. Now domestic flying is a great help for Covid-19 spreading.

@Christy Sweet, Guess Thailand considers herself this moment not being a foreign tourist destination. Therefore nothing needed in english.

Thailand's largest tourist destination and these graphics cannot be in English, too?
