Thailand will lift its ban on international flights which was imposed in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) said the ban will be lifted on Wednesday under a few conditions.

Any person or aircraft entering Thailand must comply with the conditions, added CAAT.

The announcement follows the government’s approval of some foreign travel to the country on Monday.

Thailand’s airports and airline industry bore the heaviest brunt from the ban in April before the CAAT allowed some flights to resume in May.

The Department of Airports said fewer than 5 million passengers have passed through the country's 28 airports since the beginning of the year, compared to 9.3 million passengers in the same period last year.

With the country’s lockdown being progressively eased in recent weeks, a limited number of domestic flights have started slowly pushing up airport usage.

The airports are currently managing a movement of between 70 to 80 scheduled flights a day, down from the daily average of between 160 to 170 flights in previous years.
