Thai Airways International (THAI) has announced plans to launch direct flights between Bangkok and Brussels. Starting from 17 November 2011, the services to Brussels Airport (BRU) will operate three times per week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, operated by a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft with 30 business class and 262 economy class seats.
Leon Verhallen, Head of Aviation Marketing at BRU, said that the decision to launch services was taken at the recent Routes Asia event.
“We have been in talks with Thai for several years to add to the growing Star hub at BRU. At Routes Asia, THAI announced as part of their Route Exchange briefing, that three weekly frequencies became available for Europe. We saw many airports competing for this. We are very pleased that our relationship with Thai, with frequent Routes meetings, has resulted in today’s announcement,” Verhallen said.
