The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) said in a statement released Thursday (May 14) that it has granted permission for Phuket international airport to resume limited operations from Saturday.
The airport has been shut down since April 3 to curb the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.
CAAT said Phuket airport will be allowed to serve both domestic and international flights.
Passengers, however, are required to fill in forms explaining their reasons for visiting Phuket.
Also, despite the reopening of the airport, international flights are unlikely to land in Phuket, as the CAAT has banned all in-bound flights to Thailand, with exceptions to emergency measures.
