SE Asia’s latest LCC THAI Smile takes off


THAI Smile, the new premium regional sub-brand of Thai Airways
International (THAI), has taken delivery of its first A320 in late June, the first of 11 A320s which will be delivered by mid-2015.

The delivery sees the THAI group become a new operator of the A320 Family, which joins an existing fleet of wide body Airbus aircraft flying with the airline. The Bangkok-based carrier started regional operations on 7 July with daily flights to Macau, before flying domestically to Krabi, Chiang Mai, Surat Thani and Phuket. These will be followed by new routes to more international destinations.
