Thai Airways jacks up fuel surcharges with immediate effect

Thai Airways increased fuel surcharges on all international flights to and from Bangkok yesterday. The extra charges range between US$5 (THB163) and US$45 (THB1,468) and will be added on to the price of the airline’s tickets.

How much extra THAI’s tickets will cost depends on the zone travelled to and the particular cabin class. Thai news sources note that the fuel surcharge has risen by up to 200 per cent and this is the second time in 2017 this extra fee has been increased.  

The lowest hike of US$5 applies to economy class tickets to destinations in neighbouring countries such as Hanoi and Phnom Penh. Business class tickets to the same locations will have an extra US$8 (THB261) tagged on
At the other end of the scale, tickets from Bangkok to the likes of London and Paris have risen by US$30 (THB979) in economy and US$45 in business. THAI’s management has not so far announced whether fuel surcharges for domestic flights will go up.

The advantage of searching for tickets on 12GO ASIA is that we offer tickets for all airlines on the selected route. This means travellers have the freedom to choose what they want to pay and opt for the level of cabin class suited to their particular requirements.
