Flights rebounding after cascading effects of storms and staffing shortages



Thai capital welcomes first tourists for quarantine-free holiday

There were 1,534 foreign arrivals and 890 Thais on 40 international flights on the opening day on Monday, senior health official Kiattiphum Wongraijit said. The waiver covers more than 60 countries, including the United States and China, plus several places in Europe, from where some were escaping the winter blues. “Right now, in Europe as you know it’s quite cold, so we decided to go come here,” said German tourist, Simon Raithel, among the first arrivals.
