Thai Airways International Public Company Limited starts a new non-stop service between Oslo and Bangkok.
The operation will start on 15th June, 2009 and there will be 5 weekly departures on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Departure time from Oslo is 14.55 hrs. with arrival Bangkok at 06.20 hrs. local time on the following day. Departure time from Bangkok is 00.35 hrs. with arrival Oslo at 07.00 hrs. local time on the same day. The schedule has been adjusted to fit with domestic flights in Norway, as well as with THAI’s flights between Bangkok and regional routes in Asia and Australia/New Zealand.
The service between Oslo and Bangkok is introduced 30 years after opening of TAs sales office in Oslo in 1979. Since then, the growth of traffic between Norway and Asia, leisure as well as corporate, has increased steadily. In 2008, more than 130,000 Norwegians visited Thailand, and THAI has several times received the Norwegian Grand Travel Award for best intercontinental airline.
