In the European Commission press release dated 10 December 2015, “No air carriers from Thailand were added to the Air Safety List at this time.” (ref. http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-15-6284_en.htm)
As such, THAI will continue to operate regularly-scheduled flights to Europe, which includes these 11 cities in 9 countries: London, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Brussels, Munich, Oslo, Paris, Stockholm, Zurich, Milan, and Rome.
