Caitlin Ashworth



After a major slowdown in both international and domestic travel due to coronavirus travel restrictions, Thai Airways is now offering flights to and from 7 international destinations over the next 2 months, according to the airline’s chief executive Wiwat Piyawirot.

These flights are “semi-commercial.” Wiwat says return flights are intended for Thais returning home from overseas, those with families in Thailand, those travelling to Thailand on business, students and travellers with connecting flights.

  • London – Sundays
  • Frankfurt – Fridays
  • Copenhagen – Sundays
  • Hong Kong – Wednesdays (expect November 11 and 25)
  • Tokyo – Wednesdays and Saturdays
  • Taipei – Fridays and Wednesdays
  • Sydney – Sundays (Must inform the Australian Embassy in Thailand)

Check with Thai Airways to confirm flight times.

    I would fly if I could pay at the entrance to the aircraft, like on a bus.
    Otherwise, paying in advance to this airline is stupid.
    Thai Airways owes B24 billion in ticket refunds.
    How about Thai Airways contacting these passengers that had their tickets cancelled. Some might still be in Thailand.
    Thai Airway could offer them a free flight to compensate them for their cancelled flight.
    Is that likely?
    Not from this gang of scammers.
    This is like the man that owes you a tenner, who says: I know I owe you a tenner. Lend me another tenner and that will round it up to twenty.

      agrees to one hundred percent, was himself blown by this rice cooker and did not see a glimpse of a penny. Last time I choose this crap, scam company and intend to choose the coolest European if I were to go to the scam country. These thieves will never replace customers with refunds or free tickets, typically Thai business.

    Anyone with a forward paid for reservation may want to look at Thais website and register their interest as a Thai creditor but I suspect your chances of getting a refund are close to zero.
    people who have paid by credit card may have some hope of compensation form your card issuer.

    Also might not be to wise to land anyplace they are owing money.
    Would not be first time for a fuel bowser to be parked behind the AC.
    Look what happened to the current head of Los’s jet in germany in the past.
