The art of flying

For 55 years, millions of travellers have flown with Thai Airways, and to each one, it has brought a smile. The airline considers these smiles its greatest reward for crafting so many beautiful journeys through its award-winning service, Thai-style hospitality, modern fleet and world-class facilities.

With the world’s most advanced aircraft and an extensive network covering more than 70 cities across four continents, Thai Airways elevates flying to an unprecedented level. A new era in comfort was launched with the airline’s acquisition of the Airbus A380, the world’s largest commercial aircraft. Its ample interior space is a plus; so is the lower carbon footprint it produces.

Also in the fleet is the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. In this craft, biometric LED mood lighting helps passengers adjust to changes in daylight to reduce jet lag and there are larger windows; an open cabin concept improve sightlines, and reduced air pressure creates higher humidity.

Even the Boeing 777s and Airbus A330s have seen an upgrade, and have been fitted with the latest technology, seats and decor to match the newer planes. The airline is also looking forward to the addition of the new Airbus A350.

With a world-class fleet, comes a world-class experience. Thai Airways calls its stellar service the Royal Orchid Service. This award-winning service has won the hearts of the airline’s customers since its founding in 1960. It brings Thailand’s culture of hospitality on each flight and aims to richly engage all five senses with an attention to detail that is uniquely Thai.

The airline’s Royal First Class cossets passengers in luxury on board. Step into its gold-accented interior and be greeted with ample storage compartments, plush leather seats that fully recline into beds, entertainment on demand and award-winning cuisine paired with a selection of fine wines. Royal First Class passengers also enjoy a personal escort service from check-in through to the Royal First Lounge and Spa, and at boarding.

Royal Silk Class, made for the business traveller, ensures that time spent in the air is not time lost. Here, the seating configuration maximises privacy, chairs recline fully into flat beds and a fine-dining experience orchestrated by top chefs can be had in the air accompanied by entertainment on demand. Royal Silk Class passengers also enjoy the convenience of dedicated check-in counters, fast-track services and access to Royal Silk Lounges and Star Alliance Gold Lounges in more than 1,000 airports worldwide.

Flying is made enjoyable even in Thai Airways’ Economy Class, where the colourful cabin interior is matched by warm service, on-demand entertainment, delicious cuisine and complimentary beverages. The journey is bound to feel anything but economical.

Journey from the Land of a Thousand Smiles to the Eternal City
Thai Airways flies to an extensive list of ASEAN and European countries, and forges well-connected flight paths through major cities around the world. One of its more popular routes in Europe is from Bangkok to Rome, where Thai Airways flies to the ‘eternal city’ three times a week. Embark on an unforgettable trip to one of Europe’s most charming cities and take in the sights and sounds that Rome has to offer.

Most known for being the capital of two states, Italy and Vatican City, Rome boasts an astounding number of historical sites. Pay a visit to the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre built for gladiatorial combat during the Roman Empire, the

Arch of Constantine, a monument to commemorate Constantine’s victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge, and the Pantheon, a Roman temple commissioned by Roman statesman and architect, Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa.
