From Sendai, flights will leave at 11.15 am and land in Bangkok at 4.05 pm. Flight duration in each direction is about 6 hours. Sendai is 2 hours ahead of Bangkok.

Currently there are no direct flights that link Bangkok and Sendai.

The new route will be served with Boeing 777-200 aircraft accommodating 30 Royal Silk Class passengers and 279 Economy Class passengers.
