The flag carrier of Thailand is selling the seats in economy class for travel from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth to Bangkok. Onward destinations are also on sale, with seats to Europe starting at $990 return.
The sale fares come at a time when the airline continues to modernise its fleet on Australian routes.
Most flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to Bangkok are operated by Boeing 777 aircraft in a two-class configuration – business and economy – with seat-back TV screens for all passengers.
Perth flights are being upgraded to brand new Airbus A330-300 aircraft, with the first Perth-Bangkok flight set down for July 15, 2009.
