Thai Airways International announced that the airline will introduce an increase in fuel surcharge, due to the continual increase in the cost of fuel, on international and domestic flights as of 16 August 2005 onwards.

Mr. Somchainuk Engtrakul, THAI`s Member of the Board of Directors acting as President and Chairman of the Executive Committee, said that due to the continual increase in the cost of fuel has resulted in increased fuel expenses for airlines around the world, especially as the fuel prices continue to rise on a regular basis. Therefore, the company announced implementation of an increase in fuel surcharge on international and domestic flights, which is applicable to all passengers traveling on THAI`s flights and those who have issued airline tickets with THAI`s sales offices and travel agents that issue the airline`s tickets in Thailand as of 16 August 2005 onwards, as follows.

Domestic Flights

Implemented on all domestic flights at 300 baht (one-sector flights) and 600 baht (round-trip flights) per flight coupon, from previously 200 baht (one-sector flights) and 400 baht (round-trip flights).

International Flights

  • Implemented on flights in the Asian and Middle East region at USD 25 or approximately 1,000 baht per flight coupon, from previously USD 20 or approximately 800 baht per flight coupon.
  • Implemented on intercontinental flights, including Australia and New Zealand at USD 50 or approximately 2,000 baht per flight coupon, from previously USD 35 or approximately 1,400 baht per flight coupon.

For passengers who issue THAI airline tickets from travel agents or THAI`s offices worldwide (except Thailand), the airline will implement a fuel surcharge at that initial surcharge rate as of 5 September 2005 onwards. In future, if the situation concerning the cost of fuel returns to normal, THAI will consider suspending the fuel surcharge.
