The Thai Air Force has prepared emergency medical and aviation teams to evacuate Thai nationals out of the war-inflicted Israel.

Sutin Klungsang, the Minister of Defence, inspected the readiness of the Air Force before the deployment of aircraft to evacuate Thais affected by hostilities in the Middle East. The Air Force has readied planes and three emergency medical operation teams for the mission.



These emergency teams will work alongside aviation medicine personnel from the Medical Flight Center, Institute of Aviation Medicine, who has been on standby since the first day of the incident. Especially for patient care, there are dedicated medical and nursing teams for air transportation, along with three psychologists per flight. Additional teams can be arranged based on flight requirements.

The teams have vast experience from past missions including the deadly tsunami incident in Thailand, and have also accumulated significant international experiences from events like the earthquake in Turkey and the evacuation of Thais in Sudan earlier this year.



This expertise is adaptable to the evacuation of injured people in Israel. Everyone can be assured of the Air Force’s experience and ability to save Thai citizens in need. However, it was acknowledged that there might be certain limitations, such as handling severely injured patients without understanding their conditions beforehand, and long-distance flights of 10-15 hours requiring fuel stops.

Preliminary plans have identified four flight routes to evacuate Thais from Middle East conflict areas: to Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Cairo in Egypt, and Cyprus, pending coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. (NNT)
