Airport officials are strict about enforcing use of Thai Chana and Mor Chana contract-tracing apps, and the Airports of Thailand registration application.

While it may be called Chiang Mai International Airport, the facility has been reduced to serving only Bangkok as coronavirus restrictions and airline cutbacks reduced flights to just 30 a day.



The 1,300 passengers passing through the airport each day is down 85 percent from before the coronavirus second wave, said airport Director Amonrak Chumsai Na Ayutthaya. Only Bangkok’s Don Mueang and Suvarnabhumi airports are being served.

The airport has stepped up cleaning and disinfecting.
