Bangkok SukhumvitPassengers in Vienna will be able to fly to Bangkok even more comfortably than in the past thanks to the increasing frequencies between two capitals by Thai Airways.

To ensure even greater travel comfort, THAI will deploy a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner to and from Vienna in the future, the first time it is using the aircraft to a European destination. The carrier will fly five times per week between Bangkok and Vienna.

“Bangkok is one of the most popular vacation destinations for passengers from Austria, especially during the winter months. We are pleased that THAI has already decided to increase frequencies on its flight connection between Vienna and Bangkok shortly after entering the market in November 2017. This confirms that the offering has been well received in Austria. Passengers from Vienna will thus enjoy improved possibilities to travel to Thailand’s capital. In addition, Vienna will be the first European capital that THAI will serve with a Dreamliner. By deploying the Dreamliner aircraft on the Vienna-Bangkok route, the airline is also enhancing the travel comfort of passengers. On balance, thanks to the new frequency we currently offer 16 flight connections to Bangkok each week”, says a pleased Julian Jäger, Member of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG, commenting on the new developments at THAI.

Five weekly flights to Bangkok on a Dreamliner

Thai Airways will increase the number of weekly flights operated between Vienna and Bangkok from four to five. An aircraft will leave Bangkok at 1:20 a.m. on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and land in Vienna at 7:15 a.m. local time. The return flight will take off from Vienna at 2:35 p.m. and arrive in Bangkok at 5.35 a.m. on the next day. The direct flight connection will be served by a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner as of April 20, 2018. Vienna is the first European capital to which THAI is deploying a Dreamliner jet. The aircraft stands out thanks to its spaciousness, low cabin pressure, improved air quality and optimal humidity and thus offers passengers a particularly high level of travel comfort.
