Thai Airways has confirmed that it will relaunch a second daily service from its Bangkok hub to Sydney starting 31 March.

The Star Alliance member will deploy its latest-technology Airbus A350-900 aircraft on both daily rotations.

These feature between 30-33 Royal Silk business class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, as well as 289-309 economy class seats, depending on which A350-900 configuration you might get.

Thai Airways is in the process of adding several young A350s to its fleet that were rejected by other airlines during the pandemic and its aftermath, including aircraft that were previously destined for Hainan Airlines and its affiliates, so their interiors are slightly different.

TG475 will depart Bangkok daily at 0830 for a same day arrival into Sydney at 2030, with the return service departing Sydney as TG476 the following morning at 1000 for arrival back in Bangkok at 1620.

Meanwhile, TG471 will leave Bangkok every night at 2220 and arrive in Sydney the following morning at 1020 local time, and the return TG472 service will depart Sydney at 1450 and land back in Bangkok at 2110.

Last month, Thai Airways confirmed an order for 45 additional Boeing 787-9 long-haul Dreamliner aircraft, as well as many additional 787-9s, but also A350-900 and A321 neo aircraft, on lease.

The Thai flag carrier has plans to significantly grow its network and revenues with the expanded fleet.
