Thai Airways, Airbus to set up aircraft maintenance hub in Thailand

National carrier Thai Airways International and Airbus plan to jointly open an aircraft maintenance and repair operations (MRO) hub in Thailand. The hub will cost about 11 billion baht (£252 million) million), of which about 7 billion baht will come from the Thai navy’s budget, while a Thai Airways-Airbus joint venture will invest the rest, Thai Airways Management and Flying Officer Ronnachai Wongchaoum told reporters in Bangkok. The aviation maintenance hub will be set up at Thailand’s U-Tapao Airport, a joint civil-military airport near the country’s eastern seaboard. 

The proposed project will add to the growing aviation maintenance sector spread across Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia, potentially posing a threat to Singapore, the region’s dominant hub for aircraft maintenance and repair. Thai Airways will start maintaining the Airbus A380 with the support of Airbus teams in U-Tapao, which is located 150 kilometers (90 miles) east of Bangkok, the airline said in a statement on Friday. The new facility will provide services including heavy maintenance, line maintenance and aircraft painting services, the carrier added.

Thai Airways International will launch 4X-weekly Bangkok Suvarnabhumi-Vienna services Nov. 16, using a Boeing 777-200ER, with 30 seats in business and 262 in economy class.

It is believed the new route will be then served by three Star Alliance member carriers—Austrian Airlines, EVA Air and Thai.

Thai Airways VP-sales Bryan Banston told ATW in March the Star Alliance member has 35% of its total capacity placed on routes to Europe, serving 12 destinations (without Vienna) on the continent. Thai’s network also includes 10 domestic destinations and more than 70 international routes in 33 countries.


April 2017

THAI Airways announced that it and its two affiliates, Nok Air and Thai Smile, will meet at the end of the month to create a plan to streamline management of all three airlines under the entity THAI Group. The joint framework will include flight routes, maintenance and group services, aircraft parking, and joint marketing. THAI Airways is a full service carrier providing services to 34 countries. Nok Air has traditionally focused on the domestic market with just three international destinations - Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Yangon. However, this year it plans to launch six new China destinations, a market where its joint venture NokScoot (XW, Bangkok Don Mueang) is also particularly focusing on. Thai Smile serves domestic routes and select international routes in the southeast Asia region.

Passengers may carry free of charge baggage as specified and subject to the conditions and limitations in THAI regulations. In May 2017, Thai Airways announced it has become the third Thai commercial carrier to complete its AOC recertification. The CAAT hopes to recertify Thailand's commercial carriers by June 2017 so that it can undergo an ICAO audit to address shortcomings identified during its 2015 Significant Safety Concern (SSD) finding. It is working with CAA International (CAAi), the advisory subsidiary of the UK Civil Aviation Authority, to implement improvements across the eight critical elements identified by ICAO to ensure an effective aviation security oversight system. Bangkok Airways and Thai Air Asia have also successfully completed recertification. Still remaining in the first group are Thai AirAsia X, Nok Air, NokScoot, K-Mile Air, Thai Smile and Orient Thai Airlines.

Thai said it is holding an additional 25 aircraft for eventual sales, which the company values at THB10.7 billion. The airline carried 22.3 million passengers in 2016, up 4.8% YOY. Traffic increased 2.5% to 60.9 billion RPKs and capacity was up 1.9% YOY to 85 billion AKS, producing a 73.4% passenger load factor, up 0.5 point YOY. Yield fell 4.5% YOY to THB2.35. Additionally, Thai said it has a payment obligation to purchase four Airbus A350-900s; deliveries are expected to begin this year and continue into 2018.


March 2017

Thai Airways announced that new services by Thai Airways subsidiary Thai Smile aimed at providing connections to eight destinations across Asia for passengers from the UK via Bangkok. Access to Kota Kinabalu and Penang, in Malaysia; Siem Reap and Phnom Penh in Cambodia as well as Kunming and Xiamen, in China are now available via Thai Airways flights from Heathrow. An onward link from Bangkok to Luang Prabang in Laos is due to be added from October 1. The new connecting services are being offered by Thai Smile to match up “as conveniently as possible” to Thai Airways’ double daily flights from London to Bangkok. Passengers heading to Kota Kinabalu can connect two hours after arriving on the airline’s Airbus A380 service from London, while those heading to Siem Reap will only have to wait one hour and forty minutes.


February 2017

Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) said that it is prepared for Suvarnabhumi Airport maintenance, which involves scheduled repairs on one runway for two months with a contingency plan in place to prevent flight delays.

Mrs. Usanee Sangsingkeo, THAI Acting President, said that the scheduled partial closure of runway 01R/19L from 3 March to 5 May 2017 for 60 days will affect aircraft takeoff and landing during a period of time. Normally, air traffic at Suvarnabhumi Airport can be quite congested and the Company is prepared in case flights are delayed on departure and arrival. Therefore, the Company anticipates that this may result in some flight delays on departure and arrival.

THAI’s contingency plan ensures flight operation readiness with full consideration for safety, whereby consideration will be made on increasing the amount of jet fuel carried on each flight for the air traffic conditions concerned. Furthermore, the Company is prepared to use an alternate airport if necessary and has set up an operations center to coordinate and resolve any issues that may arise due to temporary runway repairs.

THAI is fully aware that its passengers may be inconvenienced during this period and staff will be on hand to provide additional assistance to passengers with flight connections. Passengers are advised to spare extra time for connecting flights. Passengers traveling on all THAI flights will be looked after with extra care to ensure maximum comfort and convenience.


In August 2016, THAI Airways took delivery of its first Airbus A350XMB aircraft. The A350 XWB cabin is designed in THAI contemporary concept with mood lighting adjustment system. Some cabin features include an extended overhead area to increase headroom, larger overhead luggage compartment and wider windows. The aircraft can accommodate 321 passengers. THAI has 12 Airbus A350 XWB aircraft on order, with four on purchase orders and eight on lease. THAI’s first A350-900, a mid-size, long-range commercial aircraft, will operate its first intercontinental route to Melbourne, Australia in mid-September. The second A350 aircraft delivered in the third quarter will also operate on the Melbourne route for a double daily operation.


In July 2016, THAI Airways' alliance Star Alliance claimed the Best Airline Alliance title at the Skytrax World Airline Awards. The Alliance also received the Best Airline Alliance Lounge Award for its prestigious Los Angeles Lounge for the second year in row.
