Thai Air­ways re­ceives its first B787-9 Dream­liner

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - UPFRONT -

Air­ways has taken de­liv­ery of its first B787-9 Dream­liner, which will op­er­ate the air­line’s Sin­ga­pore route un­til its de­ploy­ment to Auck­land and Taipei on Novem­ber 16.

The air­craft is an im­prove­ment on Thai Air­ways’ ex­ist­ing six B787-8 Dream­lin­ers, which have a smaller ca­pac­ity and shorter range than the B787-9.

The new air­craft gives Thai the abil­ity to fly to new des­ti­na­tions – such as North Amer­ica – di­rectly, though the cur­rent sched­ule has it stay­ing in Asia-Pa­cific.

Mean­while, the air­line’s longde­layed A350 up­gauge on its Mel­bourne ser­vices has fi­nally taken off, a year af­ter it was orig­i­nally planned to be­gin. tha­iair­
