As countries around the world increase vaccination rates, the world is shifting from COVID-zero policies to reopening with the realization that we must learn to “live with COVID”. After months of lockdowns and vaccination drives, we are learning to overcome our fears and come to the realization that life must go on.
This November, Thailand joins many nations in reopening the country’s borders and offering much-needed work to millions of Thais in the transport and service sectors. I, for one, am confident that slowly Bangkok will soon reclaim its status as the world’s most visited city.
When faced with crisis, Thais have always demonstrated their resilience through creativity, positivity and hard work. I believe this time will be no different.
At Delta Thailand, we are cautiously following the situation as the country reopens and are adapting our policies according to the changes.
However, we will continue to remain vigilant to protect our people and support Thailand’s recovery until we beat COVID-19 for good. Thanks to everyone’s dedication we have overcome all odds to successfully vaccinate all our Delta Family who chooses to.
After a challenging year, we look forward to a well-deserved rest over the New Year and for better days ahead in 2022.
In our November issue Town Hall column, DET president Jackie Chang updates our latest COVID-19 actions and recognizes the efforts of our teams working to provide a better experience for everyone at Delta.
In the Onsite section, our 9th part of the DET Voices audio series we hear the honest voices of our people who share about the importance of truth and getting the right information these days.

Cliché inspirational quotes make me cringe while creative ideas and people inspire me. Love food, dogs, traveling and staying healthy. Not one who is contented to be marching on the same spot for too long, I am grateful for the many opportunities given to explore and learn new things in Delta since 2004.
