THAI maps out return to the skies

BANGKOK, 11 May 2020: Confident it has a government fiscal bailout in the pipeline, beleaguered Thai Airways International released details of a July startup of flights on routes worldwide.

According to timetable information posted on booking systems and reported by Airlineroute, Thailand’s national airline has filed details of flights resuming 1 July.

Earlier reports had suggested the airline would stay offline until late October when the winter timetable kicks-in.

Frequencies vary from just a few services per week to daily flights to London Heathrow, Copenhagen and Frankfurt.

  1. How is it possible for Thai to fly to Australia, when the Australian Government has closed it’s borders to International Flights, even if they can fly into Australia, they have to fly back EMPTY, so that is not a viable financial option, it is totally confusing at the moment.

  2. That’s only for Thai Airlines. I’m coming from the US New York. Last I read, Thailand wasn’t open for Foreigners. Hopefully I can get a flight in September.

  3. Glad to see Thai getting back to some sort of normalcy. Can’t wait to see the world get back to work. Hopefully after border controls ease back to pre Covid levels I can get back to Thailand for a bit of a vacation.
