TAT previously asked its staff to work from home from 23 March to 5 April, then extended until 15 April, and further extended until 30 April, in line with the Thai government’s social distancing guidance as well as several nationwide measures under the Emergency Decree to prevent and mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Taking into consideration the aim to safeguard public health, while TAT continues its work from home approach, it adheres with the policy of the Thai tourism industry to provide and maintain quality services.
