Thai Airways unlikely to resume flights in August

Anyone expecting the beleaguered Thai Airways to resume its flight schedule in August should not hold their breath. That’s the word from reliable sources in the industry, who predict the national carrier will not take to the skies again until September at the earliest.

A report in TTR Weekly says the airline, currently undergoing a rehabilitation process, has extended its moratorium on flights until at least September 1. Thailand’s Central Bankruptcy Court is set to decide its fate later this month as it reviews the proposed financial restructuring plan for the long-struggling airline.

The following is a list of the routes that may resume from September, although any such decision is dependent on the Thai government lifting the current ban on international arrivals, as well as other destinations easing their restrictions on flights arriving from Thailand. Australia’s borders, for example, remain closed indefinitely, with very limited exceptions.

Adding to Thai Airways’ woes is the ongoing restructuring and bankruptcy procedures.

    If that is the case, fire all staff especially the management who managed this airline to this bankrupt state.
    But they will not.
    With government compliance they will loot this airline to the very last moment, and draw salaries.
    If they did this in the West they would be locked up at this very moment.

    Isn’t the date for the hearing at the Central Bankruptcy Court August 17? In the article it says later this month.
