THAI maps out A380 deployment strategy
Sim Kok Chwee, Singapore, April 24, 2012
 

THAI Airways International (THAI) has revealed its plans for the Airbus A380 aircraft that will be deployed progressively from 3Q2012.

 

The planes will first be utilised on the carrier's daily services to Hong Kong (TG600/TG601) and Singapore (TG409/TG410) during the period October 28–December 14.

 

Starting December 15, THAI will deploy the A380 on its daily Bangkok–Frankfurt flights (TG920/TG921). An extra A380 service to Tokyo (Narita) (TG676/TG677), operated daily, will be launched on January 16, 2013.

 

As the carrier takes delivery of additional A380s, the plane will be utilised for daily Bangkok–Paris (Charles de Gaulle) services, replacing the existing 10-weekly flights operated with Boeing 777-300ERs.

 

THAI's A380s will offer 507 seats in a three-class configuration (12 first-class, 60 business-class and 435 economy-class). Compared to the first tranche of A380s delivered to Singapore Airlines, Thai’s A380s will offer an additional 36 seats in economy class.
