Thai Airways announces Winter schedule

22-Sep-2005

BANGKOK (Thai Airways) - THAI Adjusts International Traffic Plans in Preparation for Increased Passenger Arrivals During the Winter Program.

Thai Airways International Public Company Limited announced an adjustment and increase in its flight schedule for the international traffic plan, in preparation for increased passenger arrivals in Thailand during the Winter Program on routes to America, Europe, and Asia, effective as of 31 October 2005 onwards.

Mr. Somchainuk Engtrakul, THAI's Board Member acting as President, said that THAI's adjustment in its international traffic plan will be implemented in preparation for an increase in passenger arrivals in Thailand during the Winter. THAI is planning for an increase in passenger travel on various routes worldwide during this period, with adjustment to the Winter traffic schedule based on flight reservations and actual passenger numbers per flight. The adjustment on the airline's international routes for its Winter operations is a move that has received positive results from passengers traveling with THAI, since the cabin factor during this period is currently at 75 percent. The high cabin factor during the Winter resulted from cooperative efforts conducted by THAI's Management and staff, increasing flight reservations in the Winter Program, whereby flights in on international routes were adjusted as follows:
