Perth Airport welcomes Thai Airways return
Perth Airport Chief Commercial and Aviation Officer Kate Holsgrove said it was fantastic to see the airline return with a non-stop daily service to the popular destination.
“The return of this service means tourists, students and businesses have the option of a non-stop connection to Bangkok which will deliver a significant 186,368 seats and 14,000 tonnes of cargo capacity to the Perth market annually.
“With Thailand being Western Australia’s eighth largest trading partner and a significant market for international students, the resumption of non-stop flights provides a massive opportunity for both our economies.
“Growing international seat capacity by securing non-stop services to international destinations has and continues to be a priority for Perth Airport.
“The announcement of Thai Airways returning to Perth in the new year is a positive sign that growth opportunities for our tourism, export and international student sectors will continue in 2024.”
Thai Airways will operate the daily service on an B787-8 which has a total of 256 seats configured with 22 Business Class seats and 234 Economy Class seats.
