Thai Airways adds extra European routes

4 Jul 2011

Thailand’s national carrier has announced that it will begin a new service to a European capital later this year. Thai Airways will run a thrice weekly service to Brussels, with flights commencing in mid-November.

The airline will use Boeing 777-200ER craft on this route and these are capable of carrying almost 300 passengers, with 30 in Royal Silk Class and the remainder in economy. The airline says that passengers travelling to Brussels will be provided with a personal entertainment system and access to the latest films as well as Thai’s premium service and meals.

Direct flights will depart at 00:30 from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and arrive at 07:00 in Brussels. Passengers flying from Brussels to Bangkok will leave at 13:30 and arrive at 06:30 the following day.  

The addition of Brussels to the network of Thai Airways will give the carrier one of the biggest Asian presences in Europe. Brussels is at the heart of Belgium, and Northern Europe, and passengers flying there can easily reach France, Luxembourg, Germany and The Netherlands.

Visitors taking Brussels to Bangkok flights are offered easy access to Thai’s extensive flight network which covers most of Southeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific region.

This new route will commence just after Thai increases flights between Thailand and Denmark. The airline will up the number of weekly flights between Bangkok and Copenhagen as well as introduce a new Phuket to Copenhagen service.
