Bangkok, 8 July, 2015 – Thai Airways International (THAI) recently celebrated the departure of the first Airbus A380 direct flight from London to Bangkok at Heathrow’s Terminal 2.
Passengers who travelled with flight TG910 on the Airbus A380 inaugural flight from Bangkok to London were delighted to be greeted at the arrival gate by a group of Beefeaters and Guardsmen. Many “selfies” were taken and passengers commented on it being a wonderful introduction to the UK.
Those who left on the Airbus A380 inaugural flight TG911 from London to Bangkok were given fresh orchid corsages and commemorative key rings to mark this special occasion at check-in. This, together with a performance of traditional Thai dance and music, created a wonderful party atmosphere.
Mr. Wit Kitchathorn, General Manager of Thai Airways International – UK, said, “This has been a great way to mark the UK’s first direct A380 flights to Bangkok, auguring a new era of travel in the UK. As always we are immensely proud of our service and doubly so now that we are the only airline offering A380, state-of-the-art, direct travel between London and Bangkok.”
