Thai Airway Expecting Lower Revenue After Tsunami

January 10, 2005

Thai Airways International said on Monday it will cut its revenue forecast for this year due to the impact of the December 26 tsunami.

The national carrier had expected its revenues to rise by 5 percent per year, president Kanok Abhiradee told reporters, without saying how much the airline would cut its revenue forecast in its current financial year ending September 2005.

"Our revenue will be lower this year but we can't tell how much at the moment," Kanok said.

The airline had revenue of 152.6 billion baht (USD$3.9 billion) in the previous year.

Kanok said the carrier expected revenue to fall by 1-3 billion baht in the January-March period as customers had postponed or cancelled bookings.

He said tourists from Japan had postponed about 10,000 tickets since the tsunami, which killed more than 5,300 people in Thailand and devastated several hotels at popular resorts in Phuket, Krabi and Phang-Nga.

Yes, i know that. And it's with the 340-500.
I was surprised exactly by the fact that Thai is going to use a 340-600 ,which has considerably less range then the 340-500, so it must using all it's range.

THAI’s revenue to lift will new routes

THAI Airways International Plc announced it will witness minimal short-term negative effects from last month’s tsunami and remains optimistic that new flight destinations could counteract any revenue slumps caused by Thailand’s worst natural disaster.

Vice-president Wasingh Kittikula, pictured right below, said THAI will expand its air routes throughout 2005 with the delivery of eight new aeroplanes.

“The tsunami incident is unlikely to have a severe negative impact on THAI’s business in the long-run. THAI’s original plan to receive delivery of new planes this year as well as to open up new air routes remain unchanged,” Wasingh told Reuters.

This year, the airline intends to operate two or three new routes from Bangkok, including non-stop flights to New York, Moscow and Johannesburg.

The New York route is expected to commence on May 1 2005, using Airbus’ A340-500 on six weekly flights.

The Moscow flight will follow in July or August with three flights per week and the Johannesburg route, operating three times a week, will start in the third quarter.

Two new Asian air destinations that the company will fly to next year are Zennai in Japan and Doha, Qatar, said Wasingh.

THAI is also looking to increase its flights on routes with high demand. Flights from Bangkok to London will fly 14 times a week from 12, and the Bangkok to Frankfurt route will have four additional flights, raising it to 14 weekly flights.

The national carrier also plans to increase flights to Stockholm and Munic by an extra flight per week, said Wasingh.

THAI will also boost its flight frequencies for several routes in Asia, including Bangkok to Beijing, Bali, Bombay and Dubai.

The airline is due to receive delivery of two new A340-500 and two new A340-600 planes from Airbus between April and September this year, enabling it to increase flight frequencies and operate the new proposed routes.

Airbus is also scheduled to deliver two new A340-500 and two new A340-600 planes later this year.

Wasingh cited the demand for the Bangkok to New York route is increasing the competitiveness between airlines. Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific are already providing non-stop services for their passengers.

The non-stop route will take between 17-18 hours and once in service will attract high-end passengers, mainly businessmen, allowing the national flag carrier to move away from relying solely on the peak tourist season to generate more revenue, said Wasingh.

“By opening new routes as well as boosting flight frequencies, THAI will find out whether the air passenger demand on those routes are strong or not.

“If the market demand there is strong, then we will immediately plan to boost the flight frequencies on the air routes,” said Wasingh.

Thai Airways International Receives Plaque from WHO for Excellent In-Cabin Management of Hygienic Systems


25 January 2005


Thai Airways International was recently awarded a plaque from the World Health Organization (WHO) for excellent in-cabin management of hygienic systems.

THAI received the award due to the introduction of preventive SARS measures that the airline has continually implemented following the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak. In addition, the airline was commended for the creation of its Biological Outbreak Operation Manual, being the first airline in the world to introduce such a manual.

THAI introduced various preventive measures to guard against the spread of SARS that includes aviation measures such as spraying Ecotru 1453, thoroughly cleaning all in-cabin aircraft equipment or facilities at 36 touch points, inspection of the aircraft air circulation systems, changing air filters prior, and more.

Currently, THAI has implemented “The Most Hygienic In-Cabin Environment” program stressing the importance of hygiene in the passenger cabin, which includes food safety, importance of cleanliness, with all THAI employees continuously implementing these procedures.

In December 2004, Dr. Anarfi Asamoa-Baah, Assistant Director-General, Communicable Diseases, World Health Organization, traveled to Thailand to attend a briefing on the various measures THAI implemented and observed activities at THAI’s Crisis Management Operations Center that coordinates crises with various functions both inside and outside of the company whenever incidents occur that effect the company.

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Boeing Co. booked an order from Thai Airways for six 777-200ER planes valued at $1.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2004, according to a news report.

This is the first time Thai Airways has been identified as the customer, AFX-Asia reported.

Deliveries will be made between August 2006 and October 2007, Boeing said in a statement released in Singapore, the report said.

Thai Airways president Kanon Abhiradee said it was purchasing 777-200ERs for its long-haul routes, the news report said.

In August, Thai Airways ordered six superjumbo A380s from Boeing rival Airbus.

Thai Airways December Passenger Loads Dip


January 31, 2005

Thai Airways said on Monday it filled 73.2 percent of its seats in December 2004, down from November and the same period a year earlier.

The airline is likely to see fewer passengers following the December 26 tsunami, which killed more than 5,300 people and devastated several hotels and resorts in southern Thailand.

Thai said earlier this month it expected revenue to fall by 1-3 billion baht (USD$26 million - USD$78 million) in the January-March period because customers had postponed or cancelled bookings.

The 54 percent, state-owned carrier said in a statement it filled 74.9 percent of its seats in November and 73.3 percent in December 2003.

It carried 1.72 million passengers in December, up from 1.66 million passengers in November, but down from 1.78 million in the same period a year earlier.

The airline filled 68.7 percent of passenger and cargo capacity in December, down from 70.6 percent in November, but up from 67.4 percent in December a year earlier.

The airline carried 5.01 million passengers and filled 73.7 percent of its seats for the first 3 months of its current financial year which runs from October 1 to September 30, it said.

That compared with 5.09 million passengers and a 73.2 percent passenger load in the same period a year earlier, it said.

Major rival Singapore Airlines said it carried 1.48 million passengers in December, up 5.9 percent from the same month a year earlier.
