THAI Adjusts Fuel Surcharge

Thai Airways International Public Company Limited adjusted its fuel surcharge on international and domestic flights, effective as of 28 April 2008 onwards, due to the increase in jet fuel cost in the world market that has increased on a regular basis.

Mr. Pandit Chanapai, Executive Vice President, Commercial Department, said that it was necessary for the company to adjust its fuel surcharge, which reflects the increase in fuel costs due to increased fuel prices in the world market that has risen on a regular basis. The company has continually made consideration to the impact this decision would have on passengers, which is why the company previously took responsibility for these increases and delayed any further increase in the fuel surcharge since the recent Songkran holiday, so as to not impact large numbers of passenger travel.

THAI Provides Assistance to Cyclone Nargis Survivors in Myanmar

Thai Airways International Public Company Limited announced that the company is providing humanitarian assistance to survivors of Cyclone Nargis by transporting relief goods to the Union of Myanmar.



Flg. Off. Apinan Sumanaseni, THAI’s President, Thai Airways International Public Company Limited, said that following the natural disaster in the Union of Myanmar as a result of Cyclone Nargis, the company provided assistance in the form of relief goods and food supplies since 5 May 2008, which was the first day that flight operations were conducted after the cyclone and after THAI received clear notification of disaster survivors’ needs. The company has donated 90,000 relief good items and transported them to the Union of Myanmar, those being blankets and tableware consisting of plates, dishes, spoons, and cups, dry foods, water, medicine, clothes. Relief goods were transported on flight TG305 on Tuesday, 13 May 2008, departure from Bangkok at 17:50 hours and arrival in Yangon on 18:45 hours.



On 3 May 2008, Cyclone Nargis impacted the Union of Myanmar, which resulted in temporary suspension of the company’s flights to Yangon on 3 and 4 May 2008. As a result of the cyclone, electricity went out and the country of Myanmar experienced substantial damage and losses. The company eventually resumed normal flight operations with return flights on the route Bangkok-Yangon v.v. at 2 flights per day, the departure flights TG303 and TG305 and return flights TG304 and TG306, utilizing aircraft type Airbus A300-600.



THAI began operating to the Union of Myanmar in year 1960, utilizing aircraft type DC10 at 3 flights per week. Passengers increased regularly over the years, resulting in an increase to today’s current flight frequency of 14 flights per week on the return route Bangkok-Yangon v.v., with a cabin factor of 70-80%. Following the natural disaster that took place over a week ago, the cabin factor remains regular. THAI has provided assistance to its 90 employees based in Yangon since the first day that the natural disaster struck.



Furthermore, THAI also provided emergency humanitarian assistance to Chengdu, located in the southwestern Sichuan province in the People’s Republic of China, following the earthquake on a scale of 7.8 Richter that took place on 12 May 2008 in a location near to Chengdu. THAI assisted in transporting relief goods on the company’s flights to Chengdu.

THAI To Be 100 Percent Electronic Ticketing from 1 June, 2008.

Thai Airways International Public Company Limited confirmed it will implement Electronic ticketing for all its flights from 1 June, 2008 in accordance with International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations.

THAI also confirmed that paper tickets that have already been issued can still be used until the expiry date of the ticket.

In addition, paper tickets will be issued for flights involving travelling with an airline that does not have E ticketing. However, IATA’s stated aim has been to have 100 percent E- ticketing for all its members by 1 June, 2008.

Mr. Pandit Chanapai, THAI’s Executive Vice President, Commercial said, “E-ticket is a more efficient way of ticketing for passengers and airlines alike. It reduces the risk of losing tickets, theft, counterfeit paper tickets, makes itinerary changes easier and enables a wide array of self service options.”

According to IATA, E-ticketing is the flagship project of IATA’s Simplifying the Busines programme, which is aimed at making travel more convenient and cost efficient. While a paper ticket costs US$10 to process, e-ticketing reduces that cost to US$1. The industry will save over US$3 billion each year by offering the passenger a better service.

When the programme began in June 2004, only 18% of tickets issued globally were e-tickets, with over 28 million paper tickets issued each month. That number has been reduced to less than 3 million.

For more details please contact THAI’s 24hrs. Contact Center at tel. 0-2356-1111 or visit www.thaiairways.com

Notes:
- IATA (International Air Transport Association) represents over 240 airlines comprising 94% of international scheduled air traffic.
- In 2004 some 69 airlines, comprising 56% of ticketing volumes were ET enabled. As at the end of January 2007, 269 airlines comprising 99.7% of ticket volumes were issuing electronic tickets.

Thai Airways to cancel direct flight to New York
6 June 2008
Agence France Presse

Flag carrier Thai Airways will cancel its direct flight from Bangkok to New York and sell four planes used on the route as rising fuel prices cut into profits, a company official said Friday.

"As of July 1, Thai Airways will not fly to New York because of high fuel prices. We have enough passengers, but the high fuel prices have put the airline in a difficult position," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Thai Airways will maintain its direct flight to Los Angeles, which will be the carrier's only remaining US destination, the official said.

But the airline may reduce the frequency of that route and other less profitable destinations later in the year, she added.

The airline's board of directors also decided to swiftly sell all four of its Airbus 340-500, which are only used for long-haul flights, she said.

Yes, that could be an option.

Tell them!

But with what type of airplane will they fly the LA route? The A345 will go out of service by the end of 2008. Will THAI use the A346 instead?

THAI Adjusts Fuel Surcharge

Thai Airways International Public Company Limited adjusted its fuel surcharge on international and domestic flights, effective as of 25 June 2008 onwards, due to the increase in jet fuel cost in the world market that has increased on a regular basis.

Mr. Pandit Chanapai, THAI’s Executive Vice President, Commercial Department, said that it was necessary for the company to adjust its fuel surcharge, which reflects the increase in fuel costs due to increased fuel prices in the world market that has risen on a regular basis. The company has continually made consideration to the impact this decision would have on passengers, which is why the company took considerable responsibility to assist in these increases in order to affect passengers as least as possible. Therefore, the company has adjusted its fuel surcharge for international and domestic flights, calculated on all classes of passenger travel on THAI flights and air tickets issued by THAI’s sales and ticketing offices worldwide, which is based on the policy agreed upon by the Civil Aviation Department for commercial airlines and includes agreements with other countries, as follows:
