Thai Airways has unveiled a series of new flights for its 2016-17 winter schedule, including new services direct between Phuket and Europe.
This week, the national carrier launched a new direct route connecting Phuket with Frankfurt, enabling German holidaymakers to head straight to the popular resort island. This flight will operate three times a week using a Boeing 777 aircraft, and continues onwards between Phuket and Bangkok.
In addition, THAI will increase the frequency of its seasonal Phuket-Copenhagen and Phuket-Stockholm routes to two flights per week each from 9 and 10 December respectively. These services are also operated using a B777.
The national carrier has also added more flights between Europe and Bangkok; the previously suspended Moscow route will resume on 15 December with four weekly B777 flights, and the key Bangkok-London route has increased from 12 to 14 weekly flights, including daily Airbus A380 services.
THAI’s Bangkok-Oslo service has gone daily (up from five weekly flights) and one more weekly flight has been added to the Brussels route, taking it to four weekly flights.
Finally, THAI has deployed its brand new A350 to Italy, including four flights per week to Rome and three per week to Milan.
