BTN Europe presents an overview of business travel and MICE predictions for this year
Thai Airways has confirmed that it will resume its double-daily non-stop London to Bangkok service from October 25.
The national carrier suspended night flights between London Heathrow and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi at the start of the month when it introduced the route’s only direct daily A380 service.
But the addition of the Boeing 777 in the airline’s vacant TG917/916 slot means passengers will now have two options a day between the two cities.
TG917 will depart Heathrow’s Terminal 2 at 21:35pm, arriving in Bangkok at 16:00pm, while TG916 will depart Bangkok at 13.20pm, arriving in London at 19:35pm.
The A380-800 was introduced on July 01, with TG911 flying daily from Heathrow (T2) at 12.30pm and arriving at Suvarnabhumi at 05.45am. TG910 departs Suvarnabhumi at 01.10am daily, arriving at Heathrow (T2) at 07.15am.
The plane has 507 seats in three classes: 12 in Royal First Class, 60 in Royal Silk (Executive) Class, and 435 in Economy.
