Mr. Tassapol said that aviation operators had no liquidity left to maintain their business and had never received any assistance that they had requested from the government.

The chief executive officer of Thai AirAsia sees a gloomy future for aviation and will not reconsider it until the middle of next year.

Tassapol Bijleveld, chief executive officer of Thai AirAsia and Asia Aviation PCL, said he saw a bleak future for aviation and concerned parties should have to wait until mid-2022 before reconsidering the issue.



He said that aviation operators had no liquidity left to maintain their business and had never received any assistance that they had requested from the government.

Regarding the announcement of the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand to suspend flights in the provinces declared maximum and strict COVID-19 control zones from July 21 onwards, Mr Tassapol said it would have no further impacts on Thai AirAsia because it had suspended its flight services since July 12.
