The news came as AoT Phuket this evening released their guidelines for all travellers arriving on or departing the island via the airport, after the crucial transport facility reopens after midnight tonight.

 However, AoT Phuket warned that all passengers returning from overseas to Phuket – including Thai citizens and permanent residents – are subjected to the measures under communicable disease law, such as 14 days state quarantine.

AoT specifically noted that passengers outbound from Phuket must not have a body temperature higher than 37.3°C, must wear a face mask all the time, and must complete the travel declaration form via the AoT Airports application [available on Google Play and on Apple’s App Store] and register on the Thai Chana platform.

Passengers inbound to Phuket also must not have a body temperature higher than 37.3°C, must wear a face mask all the time, and must complete the travel declaration form on the Thai Chana platform when arriving.

All passengers were instructed to strictly follow the advisory, and urged to allow extra time for their journey to account for any delays.

The first flight to arrive in Phuket since the lockdown began will be Thai Vietjet flight VZ 2306/2307 operating out of Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok. The flight is to arrive in Phuket at 4:55pm tomorrow and depart the island back to the capital at 5:25pm. The flight is currently scheduled to operate daily until at least June 30.

Thai Vietjet will add another Bangkok-Phuket-Bangkok daily flight on Tuesday, when Nok Air, Thai AirAsia will also begin operating a daily flight between the capital and Phuket.

Thai Lion Air will also launch three daily flights between Phuket and Don Mueang airport in Bangkok from June 16.

Kurt lord buddha says no need of desinfection at all because is only flu coming alone and going alone after a while. but i´m sure is the first flu in your livetime and you are scared to death :-D

I've got a smart phone, I just have never figured out how to scan things with it.  Or upload pics, or...  or... These sorts of regulations really need to  take us Luddites into account, please.

A Vietjet flight arrives at 04:55pm and takes off again at 05:25pm. How, in Lord Buddha's name,  can they disembark, clean aircraft up to international Covid-19 desinfection standards and embark new passengers in just 30 minutes? Welcome on board a 'infection cilinder'.

Good that the airport is finally opening up.  But what if you don't have a smart phone?  Cannot fly?  Cannot leave the island and come back by car?  Must be some other people in Thailand besides me that doesn't use smart phone.  Has the AoT thought of that?  Write in list on table like the shopping center?  :-)
