Thai Airways to modernise its fleet

Thai Airways International’s Chairman Areepong Bhoocha-Oom has confirmed to Bloomberg that the airline is in talks with Airbus and Boeing to modernise its fleet by replacing almost 30 older aircraft over the next five years.

“The portfolio of our airline will have new aircraft almost 100 percent,” Areepong said. It’s the right step for Thai Airways partly because fuel costs could be volatile in future even though they are low currently, he said.
