A welcoming ceremony for the first aircraft was held at Suvarnabhumi airport. THAI has become the ninth airline to receive what is billed as the world’s largest and most eco-efficient aircraft.

Mr Chokchai, who is also Acting THAI President, said the aircraft named “Sri Rattana” by HM the King was one of six Airbus A380-800 aircraft that THAI has purchased to replace six aging Boeing 747 aircraft which would later be decommissioned.

He said THAI expected that when all six Airbus A380-800 aircraft were in operation, the company’s revenue would increase by 10 per cent to Bt220 billion.

THAI will place the aircraft into service on October 6 for the Bangkok-Hong Kong and Bangkok-Singapore routes.

After the second Airbus A380-800 aircraft is delivered in November, the two aircraft would be on service for Bangkok-Frankfurt and Bangkok-Hong Kong routes from mid December.
