Thai Airways Puts the World on Your Doorstep

Living up to its promise to deliver an experience as “smooth as silk,” THAI offers guests easier connections and a broader global network.

Thailand’s national carrier is continuing its ambitious network expansion in 2024, giving travelers access to more than 210 destinations across 50 countries worldwide. Recently added gateways include Istanbul, where customers can fly Star Alliance partner airlines to more than 60 destinations in Europe and the USA. Closer to home, THAI serves eight destinations within Thailand, while the airline is boosting connections in the Asia-Pacific region by resuming services to Perth and Colombo on March 31, 2024.

Daily nonstop flights between Bangkok and Perth will be operated with a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner using two different schedules. On Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, TG 481 will depart Suvarnabhumi Airport at 7:20 a.m. and arrive in Western Australia’s capital at 3:05 p.m. local time. The return flight, TG 482, will then take off at 4:20 p.m. to touch down in Bangkok at 10:20 p.m. Alternatively, guests have the option of booking a red-eye service on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, when Flight TG 483 leaves the Thai capital one minute after midnight and lands in Perth at 7:45 a.m. the same morning. TG 484 will subsequently push back at 9:20 a.m. to return to Bangkok at 3:20 p.m.; the journey will take about seven hours each way.

After a four-year hiatus, Thai Airways is returning to Sri Lanka with daily flights on the Bangkok–Colombo route, up from five times a week before the pandemic. Flight TG 307 will depart Suvarnabhumi at 9:05 p.m. and touch down at Bandaranaike International Airport one minute after midnight; Flight TG 308 will leave Colombo at 1:20 a.m. to return to Bangkok at 7:30 a.m. local time. The estimated flying time is about four and a half hours aboard an Airbus A320 aircraft.

THAI is also adding another South Asian destination to its growing international network this spring. The airline will introduce thrice-weekly nonstop flights between Bangkok and Kochi—an historic spice-trading port in the Indian state of Kerala—on April 2, 2024. A single-class Airbus A320-200 will be deployed on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, when outbound flight TG 347 takes off from Bangkok at 9:40 p.m. and lands in Kochi at 30 minutes after midnight. TG 348 is scheduled to depart Kochi at 1:35 a.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays to touch down at Suvarnabhumi at 7:35 a.m. local time, after four hours and 30 minutes in the air.

Farther afield, Thai Airways plans to expand its footprint in Scandinavia and northern Italy just in time for the European summer holidays. The carrier is now set to restart passenger flights to Oslo and Milan from July 1, 2024.
