THAI hikes fares for high season

THAILAND: On November 1, the official start of Phuket’s high season, Thai Airways International (THAI) will increase its fares on domestic flights.

In a press release issued today, Kalayapha Panich, Thai Airways’ Phuket-based District Sales Manager for Upper-Southern Thailand, said that THAI informed travel agents of the price rises last Friday

The increases will affect both business and economy class tickets – THAI does not have first class seats on domestic flights.

Tickets for flights between Bangkok and Phuket, Chiang Mai or Haad Yai will increase by 200 baht each way; between Phuket and Chiang Mai by 400 baht; and between Bangkok and Chiang Rai, Khon Kaen, Krabi, Nakhon Sri Thammarat, Phitsanulok, Surat Thani, Trang, Ubon Ratchathani or Udon Thani by 300 baht.

The Gazette understands that fares on THAI’s international routes will also increase, though further information was not available today.
