THAI adjusts flights to Denpasar due to airport closure and volcano ash


Bangkok, 06 August 2015 – Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) adjusted flights due to temporary closure of Denpasar airport as a result of volcano ash.


Due to the Raung volcano eruption in Indonesia, the Denpasar airport closed (from 1200 – 1800 local time) due to volcanic ash from Mount Raung, causing THAI flight TG431 from Bangkok to Denpasar on 6 August 2015 to return to Bangkok. Flight TG431 is now scheduled to operate as flight TG4319 on 7 August 2015, departing Bangkok at 10:00 hours and arriving Denpasar at 15:20 hours local time.


Flight TG432 from Denpasar to Bangkok on 6 August 2015 is now scheduled to operate as flight TG4329 on 7 August 2015, departing Denpasar at 16:20 hours and arriving Bangkok at 19:30 hours local time.

Carbon Offset

THAI Voluntary Carbon Offset Program

Thai Airways International is committed to taking part in the global effort to minimize aviation industry's impact on the environment. THAI has opted to adopt the IATA-administered carbon offset program, as it is a readily available tool that enables airlines to offer passengers the ability to compensate for their carbon emissions.

THAI is proud to introduce the Carbon Offset Program to passengers who want to offset the carbon dioxide generated from flying.  We are pleased to offer you, our passengers, an opportunity to help the environment through our Carbon Offset program when you purchase tickets on THAI.

When booking flights via our THAI website, you will be able to decide whether you wish to compensate for the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. You will be able to see the amount of CO2 emitted for that particular flight, and see the related cost for the offset. As well, you can view details on where your offset contributions are invested.

Please note that carbon emission is calculated based on a methodology developed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA)

Carbon Offset Portfolio

Funds collected through our voluntary Carbon Offset Program will be contributed to the following project.

NongBua Farm Ratchaburi Biogas Project, Thailand

NongBua Farm is located in Moo 1 Ban NongBua, Bo Kra Dan sub-district, Pak Tao district, Ratchaburi province, approximately 100 km to the west of Bangkok. This biogas project involves the capture of methane (CH4) rich biogas produced during the treatment of swine barn flushing wash-waters and its combustion power generation. Suspended solids or sludge are produced by the biological conversion of organic substance (BOD or COD) in wastewater. Every wastewater treatment systems always produce the standard effluent and excess sludge. Anaerobic lagoon treatment is generally not designed for handling excessive sludge, so the sludge will be accumulated at the bottom of the ponds. Removal of these solids will be undertaken once the pond is full. The removed sludge will be dried by land spreading and then released filtrate, high nutrient water releasing from sludge.

Additional Benefits of the Project:
•    Creating employment opportunities
•    Acting as an important capacity building project, national and locally
•    Making use of waste material that otherwise gives rise to a considerable hazard
