THAI Airways this week celebrated the introduction of its A350 XWB on flights between Melbourne and Bangkok.
The new aircraft has been deployed to fly daily non-stop from Melbourne on the carrier’s afternoon service in the first instance, replacing the outgoing Boeing 777 aircraft.
A total of 12 Airbus A350 XWB aircraft have been ordered by TG, chosen for its advanced technology and efficiency.
Plans are slated for a Melbourne evening flight to also operate from Feb, subject to confirmation, providing southern Australian pax with two flights each day.
The new aircraft will boast a number of improvements including more stowage space.
