Thai Airways International Delays Again its Return in the International Skies

Thailand, Thai Airways International, Post-COVID, flights suspension

Thai Airways International decided not to resume its flights in August in contrary to its announcement at the end of June. This is already the fifth time that the national carrier in Thailand delays its return on international destinations. The airline suffers from both continuous borders’ closure by the government and its own financial woes. 
It finally came as a no-surprise and it might not be the last one: Thai Airways International decided once again to push back its operational return on its international network. Originally planned for August, the airline announced earlier this week to only looking at reopening its flights by September 1st. The airline would then resume activities on 34 international destinations while continuing serving a handful of destinations domestically. Fro; this 34 international flights, 24 will be available within Asia while the carrier will fly to seven European cities (Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, London LHR, Munich, Paris CDG and Zurich) as well as three cities in Australia (Melbourne, Perth and Sydney) allowing potentially the return of transfer travellers along the famed Kangooroo route.
The airline is also waiting a crucial decision from the bankruptcy court on August 17 on its financial restructuring plan. A decision has been already delayed. This would also clear the uncertainty over leased aircraft from TG to its creditors. Thai Airways International suspended all of its payments to creditors with the potential trouble to see its aircraft seized when flying abroad.
However, bookings from this week onwards will still be subject to travel restrictions and whether Thailand and listed destinations will be included in the government’s plans to relax the Covid-19 measures.
