Chinese from Beijing will be the first to charter planes from their infected city to bring the virus back to Thailand .

never about health ,fairness or greater good; only about money

Have they even begun to think this through? This would likely bring a mere handful to a country that needs millions to restore anything like normality to the travel sector. Thailand has been very fort

Thailand has been very fortunate with Covid and to let anyone in who has a few bucks more than average early seems like asking for trouble.

In there minds, 1 Hi-roller will spend what thousands of tourists would spend, but then only a few would be on the money receiving end.  You get what  you pay for or vice versa.

Unfortunately, the OP article never actually explains how the government intends to apply the exception for chartered private planes...

 

Do they mean some rich solo family coming in on their chartered Gulfstream? Or, do they mean private chartered Airbus or Boeing jets bringing in hordes of Russian and Chinese tourists packed to the gills in economy class?

“Many in the high-spending, high-income groups avoided direct impact from the pandemic..."

 

Rich people are blessed by special magic not available to common folk which protects them from infections. Or does avoided direct impact mean: were insulated from economic consequences like the rest of you?

It is not magic. Many silicon valley tech execs fled to yachts, islands, and homes in Jackson Hole, Barbados, New Zealand, and elsewhere.  Well reported. On the other side of the spectrum when you are 12 Mexicans in a house in Sunnyvale you can't, struggling to eat and pay rent. 

Other high profile people like Tom Hanks and Boris kept working and meeting people. Social distancing is privilege.

 

A great time for the private jet set to visit Thailand. Sparse crowds, no tours busses or hordes of shoppers. They are not talking about charter flights of Ukrainian tourists. The passengers will no doubt be prescreened for covid-19, have certificates on entry, and other requirements.

 

International Flight plans and landing permits must be arranged in advance. This is normal ops for private jet operators.Providing some health forms just another detail that can be easily arranged.
