Thailand plans to offer free domestic flights for foreign tourists

Minister Phiphat said from July 1, inoculated tourists exempt from quarantine might be tempted to extend their stay in the country after spending 10 days in Phuket if they are offered free or discounted air tickets to other provinces.

The Tourism and Sports Ministry is considering offering free cross-provincial flights for foreign tourists after airline workers are approved for Covid-19 inoculation this week.



Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said from July 1, inoculated tourists exempt from quarantine might be tempted to extend their stay in the country after spending 10 days in Phuket if they are offered free or discounted air tickets to other provinces.

He said the ministry already discussed the plan with Bangkok Airways, the owner and operator of Samui airport, as that island has the potential to accommodate tourists.
