The private sector has responded positively to the government’s plan to open Thailand to international visitors from November 1. Airports and airlines are preparing to step up their international services, with health and safety being the top priorities.

Mr. Somphol Tripopnart, general manager of shopping center operations at MBK Public Company Limited, said business owners are now fully prepared to launch their businesses for the country’s scheduled reopening to international visitors on November 1.


He said the MBK Mall, located in downtown Bangkok, has plans to reopen its spaces for domestic and international customers.

With security a top priority, Somhol said it was important for businesses to move forward with the reopening with security measures in place while rejuvenating the economy.

Mr Somhol spoke of concerns about a possible spike in COVID-19 cases after the borders reopened, saying many people had already received the vaccine. He urged those who are not vaccinated to get vaccinated.

Preparations are also underway within the transport sector to facilitate travel. The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has coordinated with airport and airline operators to make their preparations, especially at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, which is the hub of the country’s aviation.

The CAAT expects operators to restore a level of service similar to that before the pandemic. The agency will propose next week to the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration to allow Thai airports to re-serve transit passengers.

CAAT will also coordinate with relevant agencies to ensure proper implementation of health and safety measures, restore services for charter flights, and adjust zoning at airports to isolate arriving passengers for Sandbox campaigns from domestic travelers. .
