THAI to readjust revenue, cabin factor targets


BANGKOK, Dec 4 – THAI Airways International (THAI) will readjust its revenue and passenger cabin factor targets for this year after the country has been impacted by political protest.  

THAI President Sorajak Kasemsuvan conceded that domestic politics has resulted in fewer passengers using the airline’s services, as a number of countries have issued travel warnings for Thailand.

He said Thai executives will meet Friday to revise this year’s business profits target as well as its passenger cabin factor. He hoped political situations would soon end in order that Thailand’s tourism and the airline’s revenue target in Q1 next year would not be impacted.

THAI’s overall operation in Q3 this year suffered a loss of almost Bt6.2 billion, compared to profits at the same period last year of Bt1.7 billion.
