Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport has explained that there is actually no limit on the number of face masks passengers may carry on board overseas flights.

In a statement posted on its Facebook page on Saturday, the airport explained that a previous advisory, stating that passengers cannot carry more than 30 face masks without a doctor’s certificate, which increases the limit to 50, was incorrect.

It said that face masks are not included on the Thai Internal Trade Department’s list of controlled goods. 

The airport apologised for the confusion caused.
