Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, and the continuous immigration restrictions and governmental measures imposed by several countries, THAI has been forced to, once again, extend the temporary suspension of most of its international flights until the end of December 2020

 

From the UK, THAI will operate special/repatriation flights for passengers that meet the entry regulations for the Kingdom of Thailand, every Sunday and until the end of December 2020

 

- TG917 (London to Bangkok), on 18th and 25th October, 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th November, 6th 13th, 20th and 27th December.

 

In addition, there will be special flights from Bangkok to London, departing every Sunday:

 

- TG916 on 18th and 25th October, 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th November, 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th December.

 

Please note that these flights can only be booked directly with THAI, through or website or, if using existing tickets or travel vouchers through this online form.

 

Furthermore, throughout December, THAI is planning to operate special passenger flights on the following routes:

 

- TG475/TG476 - Bangkok/Sydney/Bangkok. One weekly return flight.

- TG632/TG633 - Bangkok/Taipei/Bangkok. One weekly return flight.

- TG638/TG639 - Bangkok/Hong Kong/Bangkok. One weekly return flight.

Passengers are reminded that they must follow the governmental health meausres in place at their point of departure and/or final destination and/or transit. Please visit our Travel Requirement Page for further advice.

 

We appreciate the continuous disruption to our passengers' travel plans, caused by THAI being unable to operate its regular scheduled network and whenever possible we endeavour to give as much advance notice of any cancellations as possible. We truly apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

In light of the recent developments with regards to the COVID-19 outbreak worldwide, and given the ever-changing and increasingly restrictive governmental regulations, country lockdowns, lack of demand and travel constraints put in place worldwide to combat the spread of the virus, it has become unfeasible for THAI to plan and operate its scheduled route network.

In addition, domestic flights to Chiang Mai, Phuket, and Krabi will be transferred and operated by THAI Smile.

 

- From on 27th March 2020: Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth 

 

- From 1st April 2020: THAI will cancel most of its flights to Europe, including London, Frankfurt, Paris, Brussels, Copenhagen, Oslo, Moscow and Stockholm
