The Lufthansa Group Airlines Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines commenced carrying passengers on inbound flights to Bangkok starting as of 16 October until the end of November.
“We’ve been looking forward to this day – we are grateful to the Thai government for granting us permission to resume inbound flights to Bangkok”, said Stefan Molnar, responsible for the Lufthansa Group Airlines business in Thailand. “Returning with all three premium brands clearly shows that even in these unprecedented times demand remains high for flights between Europe to Thailand, perhaps the most important market in Southeast Asia. With our flights we will be able to continue supporting Thailand as it reconnects with the world and is aiming to revive its trade and tourism industries.”
Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines are among the few airlines that never stopped operating between Bangkok and Europe since the Covid-19 situation emerged.
The flight schedule for in- and outbound flights until 24 October will offer customers 14 weekly flights between Thailand and Europe. This schedule will increase to 18 weekly flights from 25 October until 30 November:
With immediate effect, all fares on flights with Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian can be rebooked several times free of charge – including, for example, the lowest light fare without checked baggage. In response to the pandemic, Lufthansa Group Airlines had already made a one-off free of charge rebooking possible in spring. The new regulation applies worldwide to all new bookings on short, medium and long-haul routes. The Lufthansa Group airlines are thus meeting their customers’ needs for flexible travel arrangements to an even greater extent.
