    Thai Smile is Thai Airways’ low-cost brand, which only began flying in 2012. In May 2011, the Thai Airways board of directors announced plans to establish a new low-cost airline, Thai Wings, which was eventually renamed Thai Smile. You’ll get a 20 kilogram limit for your luggage, and this is a huge step ahead compared to the other competitors on the list. Customers will have 4 different fare options to suit their wants and needs. If you are fussy about where you sit on a flight, you will be happy to know that you can select your seat up to 90 days in advance. The ‘saver’ option is affordable without losing a lot of benefits. It flies to many destinations, both locally and internationally. Saver, value, and Flexi plan allow you with 20kg baggage allowance in Thailand and 30kg for International routes. For the plus plan, you are allowed with a 30kg baggage allowance in Thailand and 40kg for International routes. The airline arrives and departs at Suvarnabhumi Airport.

      Thai Airways – Thai Smile Merger

      Debt-ridden Thai Airways International (THAI) will merge its subsidiary Thai Smile into its main company as part of its overall restructuring plan. The merger is set to be completed this year. THAI reported that their creditor’s committee gave the merger the green light yesterday. Now, the plan will be put before Transport Minister Saksayam Chidchob and the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) for approval. Currently, Thai Smile operates under its own Air Operator Certificate (AOC), managing operations independently of THAI. Once the merger is complete, THAI will manage Thai Smile’s fleet planning, scheduling, and route network. The merger is expected to pave the way for better coordination of short-haul and long-haul flights at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, higher capacity, improved utilisation, lower unit costs, and improved economies of scale. THAI shed light on the expected benefits of the merger…

      “Currently, THAI Smile Airways is one of THAI’s subsidiaries of which operational performance results were reported in the parent company’s consolidated financial statements according to applicable accounting standards.

      “THAI will implement the restructuring of business operation in aviation in order to effectively improve fleet planning management, develop a seamless route network for the benefits of customers and regain strength and competitiveness in the global market in response to the national strategy in steering Thailand to be the aviation hub in the region."

      “The restructuring will enhance the company’s capabilities in every dimension including operating cost management, resource and work process integration, brand unity, and THAI and THAI Smile Airways market position to deliver the best travel experiences to the customers.”
      Thai Smile’s brand will be retired but its more than 800 employees will not be impacted, according to THAI CEO Chai Eamsiri. The airline expects restructuring to reach completion in the final quarter of 2023. In the meantime, Thai Smile passengers may purchase tickets and use services as normal. THAI recorded a net income of 12.51 Billion THB (US$370 million) in Q1 of this year, a considerable turnaround from its net loss of 3.25 Billion THB in the same period the previous year.
