Bangkok Airways resuming international flights

Bangkok Airways will resume its first international service starting from 1 August 2021.

It restarts flights between Koh Samui and Singapore to support Thailand's re-opening and the 'Samui Plus Model' project.

The resumed services between Samui and Singapore will be operated by an Airbus A319 aircraft, starting with three flights per week (Monday, Thursday and Sunday).

Passengers entering Thailand require a Certificate of Entry (COE), a negative PCR test issued no more than 72 hours before traveling, and proof of vaccination.

Additionally all passengers must undergo required Covid-19 tests during their stay in Thailand. 

Travellers with a certificate of vaccination and a negative Covid-19 test are exempt from compulsory quarantine if travelling to the following islands: Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao.

They must stay on the island for at least 14 days before being able to travel to other regions in Thailand.

Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, President of Bangkok Airways said, "We are delighted to announce the resumption of our first international flight after being on pause for a long while due to the pandemic.  The Samui - Singapore route is anticipated to bring back confidence to Thailand's tourism."
