Thai Airways launches direct flight to Vienna
Thai Airways International (THAI) has unveiled its plans to expand its European route with the launch of direct flights to Vienna.
The new long-haul route will begin its service on November 16, 2017, with the national carrier planning to operate four weekly non-stop flights between Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport and Vienna International Airport. The carrier will serve the route using a Boeing 777 aircraft.
The outbound leg of the flight will be at night, departing Bangkok at 0130 every Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday and arriving in the Austrian capital at 0700. While the return flights will take off from Vienna at 1330 and land back at Suvarnabhumi at 0520 the following morning.
“It is a pleasure to introduce Vienna as THAI’s newest destination in Europe,” said Usanee Sangsingkeo, Acting President and Executive Vice President of Commercial of THAI. “Passengers can easily connect to cities in Europe and from Europe to Thailand conveniently with THAI’s network.”
Presently, THAI flies to 12 cities across 10 countries in Europe, which includes Copenhagen, Oslo, Brussels, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich, Stockholm, London, Rome, Milan and Moscow. It will become the third carrier operating the Bangkok-Vienna route, following Austrian Airlines and EVA Air.
