China Proposes Thailand to Increase International Flights

China is looking to increase its weekly flight to Thailand as the country is slowly easing Covid-19 restrictions, allowing Chinese travellers to fly overseas.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) stated that an email from the Civil Aviation Administration of China received on August 17, 2022, inquiring if Thailand would want to further increase the number of flights from China to Thailand to 15 from 3 currently, and the same implication would also apply the other way around for flights from Thailand to China.

Currently, China prohibits flights to Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou due to its capacity limitation, but if the travelling plan proposed by CAAT meets CAAC’s capability, flights between these destinations are possible.
