To be eligible, the adults must sign up at the SAS booth at the Home, Health and Family show at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center 10am-9pm, Thursday 30 July-Sunday 2 August. When one adult buys a ticket, one child (age 2-11) travels free. The offer is available for SAS flights between Bangkok and Scandinavia in September.
The Scandinavian airline has been flying to Thailand for about 60 years this year. Operations to Bangkok were commenced in 1949.
In 1959, SAS co-founded Thai Airways International Ltd., with the Thai Government through Airways Co., Ltd. holding, where SAS supplied aircraft, management and training to the Thais in order to build THAI into an international reputable airline. SAS’s 30% shareholding was released back to Thai Government in 1977, but the close co-operation has continued. Today the airline employs 130 people in Thailand.
