Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) operates normal flights to Fukuoka, Japan and waives fees for ticketing changes.

 

Due to the earthquake at Kyushu Island, Japan, causing destruction and difficulty for THAI passengers traveling to and from Fukuoka, THAI is waiving fees for ticket changes during this period. Fees are waived for passengers holding THAI tickets issued from Thailand before 15 April 2016 for the round trip route Bangkok-Fukuoka-Bangkok, including THAI domestic tickets that are part of the Bangkok-Fukuoka-Bangkok itinerary.

 

1. Fees are waived for passengers who have already used part of their tickets, but are not able to return on the pre-booked flight. Passengers may change the date of their return flight in the same class of service. However, the return date must be before the expiry date of the ticket.

2. Fees are waived for passengers holding the complete unused ticket itinerary with travel date booked within 30 April 2016. Passengers may change the travel date one (1) time for the same class of travel and follow the same conditions as specified on the tickets.

3. Passengers requiring route change may change to Tokyo, Osaka, or Nagoya with no fees applied. However, passengers must pay the difference in ticket fares and associated taxes.

THAI Announces Shark Fin Free Cargo Policy

 

Bangkok – Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) announces that the carrier has implemented strict Cargo policy on the shipment prohibition of shark fin on THAI Cargo, effective from 15 July 2014.

 

Mr. Poonsak Chumchuay, Managing Director of Cargo and Commercial Mail Department, said since July 2014 the Company has communicated and implemented an official policy that prohibits the shipment of shark fin on board THAI Cargo. The internal announcement was sent to all THAI operating stations to comply with the recent policy.  “As part of the world community sharing in the great concern for the protection of endangered species and the environment, Thai Airways International has implemented its own official policy to place an embargo on the shipping of shark fin products on THAI.”

 

For over a year prior to issuing this official policy, THAI Cargo has avoided the shipping of shark fin on board THAI aircraft, as shown in THAI Cargo records.
