A change of aircraft at two winter routes means that Thai Airways will have the same type of aircraft on all its routes between Thailand and Scandinavia in the future.
In the winter of 2015/2016 the stations at Copenhagen Airport and Stockholm-Arlanda had to settle for Boeing 747-400 and not Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, which had previously been used on the routes. 747 actually had more seats than the Boeing 777-300ER.
“But it was not the same type of seats as the Boeing 777-300ER. Now we can offer the same product on all our flights between Thailand and Scandinavia,” explains the Danish country manager of Thai Airways, Flemming Sonne, to CHECK-IN.dk. The other daily routes from Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm to Bangkok is already operated with Boeing 777-300ER.
Last winter’s change of aircraft type was because the Boeing 777-300ER were used by other European Thai stations for year-round routes. That is why it sometimes can be difficult to find available -300ER capacity for two seasonal routes.
