Thai to launch fleet and route adjustments
Dubai, May 24, 2010
Thai, the national airline of Thailand, will introduce tactical fleet and route adjustments to cater to current market situations and passenger requirements.
In the Middle East, Thai will adjust the aircraft on the route between Dubai and Bangkok for flights TG517 and TG518 from the Airbus A340-600 to the Boeing 777. This will increase capacity in economy during the upcoming summer travel season.
Connections from the Middle East to Indonesia and Australia will be enhanced with the doubling of flights from Bangkok to Indonesia, including Bali, double daily. Flights from Bangkok to Brisbane will increase from 3 to 5 per week, and Bangkok to Auckland from 4 to 5 per week.
Direct flights to Johannesburg from Bangkok will also resume June 2, as part of the airline’s network and route expansion.
The traditional low season is May/June but demand from the Middle East for routes to Thailand and beyond is expected to increase.
Celebrating its 50th year, THAI is also offering travellers from the Middle East Royal Orchid Holiday hotel discounts to selected destinations, and the opportunity to earn bonus miles on Royal Orchid Plus when flying THAI within Thailand in Economy and Royal Silk Class.-TradeArabia News Service
