Thailand is opening its borders almost two years after restricting access to tourists in March 2020, the airline said.

IndiGo began operating flights between India and Thailand on Tuesday after a two-year period, a statement said.

Thailand is opening its borders almost two years after restricting access to tourists in March 2020, the airline said.

The country reopened its border to vaccinated travelers from every country on Feb. 1 this year, it said.

The airline said it will operate flights to Thailand until March 26 under a bubble agreement and thereafter as part of its planned commercial international operations.

“The flights will connect Bangkok with Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bengaluru and Phuket with Delhi and Mumbai,” it said.

Earlier this month, the Center announced that scheduled commercial international flights will resume in India from March 27.

The Kolkata-Bangkok flight became operational from Tuesday, the airline said.

“Fully vaccinated foreign travelers from India can enter Thailand without quarantine,” the airline said.

Under the new rules, travelers will need a negative PCR lab result before arrival and two more PCR tests after landing — one upon entry and another on their fifth day in Thailand, it noted.
