THAI Airways to order seven A330-300s

12 Aug 2010

As reported earlier, THAI Airways announced a fleet renewal programme (see news), and now has confirmed its acquisition of seven new Airbus A330-300s to be used on medium-haul routes.

The wide-body aircraft will join an existing fleet of 20 A330-300s and be used for flights across Asia-Pacific. Deliveries will begin at the end of 2011.

“Our fleet strategy aims to improve efficiency and reduce carbon emissions by matching aircraft size to market demand,” said Piyasvasti Amranand, THAI president. “The popular A330 remains an important part of that strategy.”

The development comes in the light of THAI’s several expansion moves earlier this year, including the set up of a new low-cost carrier of Thai Tiger with Tiger Airways (see news) and co-operative talks with Bangkok Airways.
