Thailand opened some border checkpoints on Saturday to accept Thai citizens from neighbouring countries wishing to return. Facilities to screen the returnees for Covid-19 risk are in place.
Thai Lion Air ready to fly domestic routes in May
The airline said that the unemployment letters previously publicised were not for all 4,000 employees but only for 120 who had not worked for at least one year.
Those employees already had discussions with Thai Lion Air before being laid off.
The airline is likely to give an opportunity for employees to go on leave without pay or voluntarily quit in May, as the company has to cut cost due to the impact of the pandemic, the company said.
