BANGKOK, 20 March 2020: THAI and Thai Smile will waive ticket change fees on domestic routes after the government cancelled the Songkran Festival.

Both airlines are now changing domestic ticket dates without charging a fee waiver for all THAI and codeshare flights with THAI Smile that were issued before 19 March for travel during 1-30 April. 

Passengers may change their flights without incurring a fee on the same route or reservation booking designator (RBD). Taxes and fare difference will apply if the chosen flight is overbooked.

They can change their route without a ticket change fee; taxes and fare difference apply.

A name change can be made just once for a THB500 fee.
