A new tax proposal regarding flight tax was proposed during 2017 by the Swedish government. The tax affects commercial flights and should be paid by passengers travelling from an airport in Sweden, in an aircraft approved for more than ten passengers. The tax amount is divided into different cost levels depending on if the passenger is travelling to a destination in a country within Europe, fully or partly in another continent or in a different continent than Europe.
This affects Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI). The law goes into effect from the 1st of April 2018, which results in all tickets booked from 2018-01-01 with travelling date from 2018-04-01 and onward include the new law regulation. The tax level is decided depending on the final destination and our direct flights to Thailand is effected with a tax level of 400 SEK per passenger.
