Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 5 April 2010

Thai Airways International has adjusted its domestic airfares, effective 1 April 2010, so that the fuel and insurance surcharges are now included in the ticket price. The fares have also increased.

During the period 1 December 2006 (when Thai Airways last officially increased its fares) to 31 March 2010, domestic airfare averaged 4.47 Baht per kilometer. As of 1 April 2010, the airline said that its domestic airfares average 6.00 Baht per kilometer.

 The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) recently set the requirement that all commercial air carriers must follow the same standard in calculating distance on each route for establishing airfares.

An example of the cheapest return fare (at press time) between Bangkok and Phuket on Thai Airways International departing Bangkok on 22 April 2010 and returning on 25 April 2010 was, according to Thai's website, THB 8,560 nett. The cheapest available fare (at press time) on Bangkok Airways for the same route, on the same dates, was THB 4,305 nett.
