Thai Airways Passenger Loads Dip
March 3, 2005

Thai Airways International said on Thursday it filled 69.2 percent of its seats in January, down from December and the same period a year earlier.

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

Thai Airways said in January it expected revenue to fall 1-3 billion baht in the January-March period because customers had postponed or canceled bookings following the tsunami.

The 54 percent state-owned carrier said in a statement on Thursday it filled 73.2 percent of its seats in December and 79.3 percent in January 2004.

It carried 1.45 million passengers in January, down from 1.72 million in December and 1.85 million in the same period a year earlier.

The airline filled 63.8 percent of passenger and cargo capacity in January, down from 68.7 percent in December, 70.6 percent in November and 68.2 percent in January last year.

The airline said it carried 6.5 million passengers and filled 72.5 percent of its seats in the first 4 months of its current financial year which runs from October 1 to September 30.

That compared with 6.9 million passengers and a 74.8 percent passenger load in the same period a year earlier, it said.

Thai Airways to launch first non-stop service to US in May

BANGKOK, March 14 (AFP) - Thailand's national carrier Thai Airways on Monday announced an expansion of its international routes, including its first non-stop flights to the United States starting May 1.

The airline would later this month extend existing international flight schedules to nine cities, as part of a flight route expansion for the summer.

"These adjustments were made in order to support expansion of the investment market, business and leisure travel in the USA, and tourists increased needs to travel, following the Thai government and private sectors efforts to work together to revive tourism after the tsunami," the airline said in a statement.

The 17-hour New York flights would operate six times a week and carry 215 passengers, it said. The airline already flies four times a week to Los Angeles via Osaka, Japan.

Between March 27 and October 29 the airline would also add an extra flight per week to London, Madrid, Stockholm and Frankfurt.

The carrier would add three flights per week to Beijing, two to Manila and one to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

The airline has also added three flights each to Sydney and Auckland, boosting weekly flights to those cities to 14 and 10 respectively.

Thai would take delivery of four new Airbus passenger jets between March and July, including the first of two long haul A340-500s arriving this month, which would allow direct flights to New York. Two A340-600s are due to arrive in June and July.

The carrier in April 2003 approved an order for eight Airbus aircraft - three A340-500s and five A340-600s for delivery starting late 2004 - in a deal worth 981 million dollars.

Thai Airways Feb passenger load rises from Jan

BANGKOK, March 29 (Reuters) - Thai Airways International PCL said on Tuesday it filled 70.7 percent of its seats in February, up from the previous month but down from the same period a year earlier.

The national carrier saw a rebound in business in February after a drop in passenger numbers in January following the Dec. 26 tsunami, which killed more than 5,300 people and devastated several dozen hotels and resorts in southern Thailand.

The 54 percent state-owned carrier said in a statement it filled 69.2 percent of its seats in January and 73.6 percent in February 2004.

It filled 66.8 percent of passenger and cargo capacity in February, up from 63.8 percent in January but down from 67.4 percent in February 2004.

However, it carried 1.35 million passengers in February this year, down from 1.45 million in January and 1.61 million in the same period a year earlier, it said.

The airline said it carried 7.8 million passengers and filled 72.2 percent of its seats in the first 5 months of its current financial year which runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.

That compared with 8.5 million passengers and a 74.5 percent passenger load in the same period a year earlier, it said.

Major rival Singapore Airlines said it carried 1.19 million passengers in February this year, down 0.6 percent from the same month a year earlier.

Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways said its February traffic rose 24.1 percent from a year earlier to 1.16 million as it expanded capacity and introduced new routes.

Thai Airways shares closed unchanged at 46.75 baht on Tuesday, while the overall stock market fell 0.9 percent.

Thai in San Francisco

I read that Thai is starting service to New York. I wonder if they will ever start service to San Francisco. I remember Thai making an unscheduled landing in San Francisco on September 11, 2001. The 747-400 Thai flight was to land in Los Angeles but U.S. authorities instructed the flight to divert to Vancouver, Canada. The pilot radioed SFO for an emergency landing fearing fuel shortage if plane continued to Canada. It was a beautiful sight seeing Thai in San Francisco!!!!

San Francisco is a world class city with an airport that has quite a large number of foreign carriers serving the airport. Many being asian carriers.
