THAI to increase flight prices | Thaiger

THAILAND: Thai Airways International (THAI) has announced that it will increase its ticket prices on both domestic and long-haul international flights yet again, citing increased fuel costs.But prices on flights to some destinations within Southeast Asia will be cut.

The new prices will come into effect from June 1.

The price adjustments will be calculated based on the distance flown. This means that while ticket prices for domestic and long-haul international flights will increase, fares to destinations within Southeast Asia will be cut.

Tickets for flights on THAI’s popular Phuket-Bangkok leg, along with all other THAI flights within Thailand, will increase by 100 baht for a one-way ticket and 200 baht for a return flight.

Price increases on tickets for long-haul destinations in Europe, Australasia and the Americas – from Bangkok – will increase by 600 baht.

Flights to Seoul or Busan will cost 400 baht more each way, while flights to Taipei will cost 200 baht more. Trips to Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka will cost about 400 baht more; and prices to Beijing and Shanghai will rise by about 200 baht.

However, flight prices to Vientiane and Phnom Penh will fall by 600 baht, and prices for flights to or from Singapore will fall by 400 baht. Flights to Malaysia will cost 440 baht less.

Somchainuk Engtrakul, a member of the company’s board of directors, said the adjustment in the fuel surcharge was the result of the increased fuel costs over the past months that have affected all commercial air carriers worldwide. He added that the price changes implemented by THAI are in line with measures taken by other major airlines.
