As part of Thailand's efforts to reduce international arrivals amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Thai Airways announced it will be suspending all international flights for the months of April and May.
With most of its flights already cut, Thai Airways will suspend international flights in accordance to the Thai government's efforts to reduce foreign arrivals until May 31.
The Bangkok-based carrier has already reduced flights and capacity as it seeks a liquidity boost to address its long-standing financial problems that have threatened the future of the airline. Around 69 of its 82 aircraft fleet have been grounded.
In efforts to address the financial situation made worse by the outbreak, Thai Airways will be cutting salaries of staff between 10%-40% and measures will be taken to ensure employees won't work for the duration of the shutdown.
The airline has previously allowed staff to voluntarily take leave without pay.
