Thai Airways is taking full advantage of the resumption of international travel and the impending summer holiday season in Australia, with the switch to twice-daily flights between Melbourne and Bangkok from December 1.
It’s another reflection of increased demand, both for travelers heading to Thailand’s colorful capital and further afield, from nearby India to Europe and the UK.
Melbourne Airport says the return to twice-daily flights sees the Thai schedule ‘resuming to pre-pandemic levels less than 12 months after borders reopened’.
“Thai Airways is one of Melbourne’s oldest airline partners and was one of the first international airlines to return to Melbourne after our international borders opened,” the airport said in a statement.
Here are the details of these twice-daily Thai Airways flights between Melbourne and Bangkok, both of which will rely on the modern Airbus A350 with business class flat seats.
