The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has tested operations at the airport to ensure it will be ready to serve passengers arriving in the southern border province once the Covid-19 situation improves.

The new airport has become a popular attraction in Betong district, drawing visitors who take photos in front of its bamboo-inspired design. “Betong” means bamboo in the local dialect.
