Thai Airways International announced on Thursday, August 27, it is ready to cater direct charter flights from six countries to Phuket in a move to help boost the struggling tourism sector, which suffers due to the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic.
The six countries include Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom, South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong.
Acting president Chansin Treenuchagron told The Nation Thailand the move is “under the government’s plan to revive the subdued tourism sector.”
According to Chansin, the airline can arrange two flights per month on each of these routes and is expected to start in late November.
“The airline will even increase the flights on these routes if it sees rising demand, he added.
Thai Airways is also expected to cater special charter flights from China to Phuket.
The acting president said Thai Airways has given utmost importance to the security and health of passengers on all these routes.
