Mr. Flemming Sonne Area Sales Manager Thai Airways International
Thai Airways International Public Company Limited is the national carrier of the Kingdom of Thailand. It operates domestic, regional and intercontinental flights radiating from its home base in Bangkok to key destinations around the world and within Thailand. Thai Airways International was founded in 1960 as a joint venture between Thailand's domestic carrier, Thai Airways Company (TAC) and Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS). On April 1, 1977, after a 17-year capital participation partnership with SAS, the Thai Government bought out SAS´ remaining 15 % holding and THAI Airways became fully owned by the Thai people. In 1960, flights were inaugurated from Bangkok to 9 overseas destinations all within the Asian region. Intercontinental services were launched to Australia in 1971, followed by flights to Europe in 1972 with Copenhagen as its first European destination. In 1997 THAI and four of the world´s major airlines joined together to form the Star Alliance Group, the first and largest airline alliance in the world. Being part of this strong global network enabled THAI to offer its passengers a world of services and destinations. Over the years THAI has received numerous recognitions and awards in many different categories, such as inflight service and quality of meals, wine and champagne, punctuality, Frequent Flyer Program, product development, best international long haul service and best intercontinental airline. In 2010 THAI celebrated its 50th anniversary with continuous growing success in providing services with the Thai touch and with family-like warmth throughout the passenger´s journey. THAI aims to further implement personnel development, which is at the heart of the company, to operate based on considerateness and readiness to provide services in order to remain amongst the world´s leading air carriers. In November 2011 THAI’s first non-stop route from Europe to Phuket was introduced from Copenhagen. THAI will be celebrating its 45th anniversary on the Bangkok – Copenhagen route in June 2017. Today THAI operates from all 3 Scandinavian capitals to Bangkok. Additionally THAI operates 2 weekly non-stop flights between Copenhagen - Phuket and Stockholm - Phuket from December to March and during the summer period from end of June until mid-August, THAI operates 2 additional flights weekly between Copenhagen - Bangkok v.v.
