Thai Airways will resume twice-daily services from Bangkok-Frankfurt and Bangkok-London from October 25.
Economic factors prompted the Star Alliance member to slash frequencies to these two popular destinations to once a day over the summer (see here).
However, according to airlineroute.net, the new frequencies operated by a B777-300ER are as follows:
Flight TG922 (every day, except Wednesday)
Bangkok – Frankfurt: departs 1250, arrives 1905
Frankfurt – Bangkok: departs 2055, arrives 1335 (next day)
Flight TG916 (every day)
Bangkok – London: departs 1320, arrives 1935
London – Bangkok: departs 2135, arrives 1600 (next day)
The flag carrier has struggled in recent years with intensified competition from Middle Eastern carriers, particularly Emirates, which now flies six times daily between Dubai and Bangkok.
Last month, Thailand’s aviation sector was also downgraded to Category 2 after failing to solve the concerns raised in an ICAO review earlier it the year (see here). In an official statement the national carrier assured the public that despite the red flag, it "operates with the highest safety standards". Thai Airways has not been added to the list of carriers banned from flying in the EU.
