Thai Increases Flights To Asia And Europe

Thai Airways International will increase flights to Europe and Asia, replacing rival airlines that cut their services after last month's terrorist attacks, and start new routes to Chengdu in China and Mumbai.

Thailand's national airline announced more flights to Paris, Rome, Zurich, Munich and Copenhagen between October 28 and March 31, as Thailand attracts tourists in search for warmer destinations during winter in Europe.

The airline also increased flights to Perth, Osaka, Guangzhou, Jakarta and Hanoi, and to local tourist destinations such as Chiang Mai and Krabi.

Thai Airways' expansion into Europe and Asia follows the withdrawal of services by many global airlines since the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and US-led air strikes on Afghanistan, which is allegedly harboring terrorists responsible for the attacks.

Earlier this month, Thai Airways said it would reduce flights with low passenger demand, such as between Bangkok and Colombo, "compensating with those of high passenger demand", such as to China.

Last week, Thai Airways suspended its flights to Lahore and Karachi in Pakistan because of their proximity to Afghanistan. The airline will fly to Osaka daily, instead of four days a week, partly replacing flights operated by Angel Air, a privately owned Thai carrier.

I think we can safely say that Europe is still growing as normal as we can expect really. At least there's some joy.


Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Any news of possible plans for comming to AMS? They cancelled these flights after the Asia crisis a few years ago, but they still have not returned unfortunately.

No plan for PTV in the near future. So if you fly in economy class you'll have to watch the movie on the main screen or better yet bring your own good book.

In biz and 1st, they do have PTV on newer planes plus Video walkman with good choice of movies.

This year they'll focus on what they used to be the best, cabin service. Their equipments aren't as good but their F/A's are top notch.

OO-VEG, forget Thai coming to AMS. The AMS-BKK sector is already too crowded (KLM daily 747 Combi, CI daily 747 full pax and BR 4 times a week 747 Combi). Only if one of these players leave AMS you may have a chance to see Thai again at AMS.

Laurens

Do all these airlines have rights on the BKK-AMS sector please?

Best regards,

If I remember correctly, Thai flew MD11s 5 or 7 times perweek from AMS to BKK via ZRH in recent years, and before that, didn't the LHR flight stopover in AMS a couple days per week on the way to BKK? There was never a "stand-alone" AMS flight, if my membry is correct.

Thai now routes passengers from AMS (and BRU and cities in Germany) via their FRA flights - courtesy of Star Alliance partner LH. While they may be increasing some frequencies to Europe, it does not seem like they are increasing destinations.

Any word on whether they will open service to SFO as was predicted before the events of 9/11?
