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 Maintenance

THAI Maintenance

THAI’s Maintenance Centre is ranked as one of the finest in Asia, providing a full range of maintenance services including certified Heavy Maintenance (D-checks) or complete aircraft overhaul. Our reputation has led to such demand for our service, a second Aircraft Maintenance Facility was opened at U-Tapao in May 1999. The new centre can simultaneously conduct service and repair work on three aircraft, and can also carry out the repair of aircraft components and passenger cabin accessories. The new facility was awarded the JAR-145 Certificate by the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA), an European body which sets and supervises quality control standards in aircraft maintenance to ensure the highest possible standards of service and safety for air passengers. The certificate is only conferred after a maintenance facility has been thoroughly inspected.
