An innovative coffee shop set up in a retired Airbus A330, located in the coastal city of Pattaya, was so popular last year that it was even ordered to close for a week after going viral on social media. Thousands of customers each day were arriving for a coffee from “Coffee War” in Sattahip, Thailand.

Damri Sangtang, a former Royal Thai Navy officer, is the the owner of 331 Station which is a new adventure tourism place on Road No 331 in Plutaluang.

The aircraft cost 10 million baht ($333,000) and was converted into a quirky cafe selling coffee for between 60 and 80 baht a cup.

Strict Covid-19 hygiene measures are already in place, including temperature checks, the wearing of masks, regular disinfection of surfaces, and hand sanitiser being made available for customers.

Only 50 customers can go inside the coffee shop for not more than one hour and social distancing rules are enforced as well as having proper hygiene measures.

The aircraft was once used by flag carrier Thai Airways and was only withdrawn from use in 2015.
