Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) is prepared to arrange special flights for Thai Muslims attending the Hajj Pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, with the first flight departing from Narathiwat Airport to Jeddah King Abdulaziz International Airport on 7 September 2013.
Mr. Chokchai Panyayong, THAI Senior Executive Vice President, Commercial Department, said that THAI is ready to operate special flights from Narathiwat to Jeddah, which will transport Thai Muslims from Southern Thailand who will attend the Hajj Pilgrimage in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.  The first flight on this route will depart on 7 September 2013, the first day of the pilgrimage, in accordance to the Prime Minister’s and Hajj Committee of Thailand’s decision to appoint THAI to organize special flights as in past years.

This year, THAI is organizing nine roundtrip special Hajj flights during 7 September – 30 October 2013, with flights departing from Hat Yai International Airport and Narathiwat Airport to Jeddah King Abdulaziz International Airport, as authorized by the Civil Aviation Authority of Saudi Arabia.  For passenger comfort and on-time performance, THAI will operate with Airbus A330-300 aircraft, equipped with 295 seats for all Hajj flights.

THAI anticipates approximately 2,655 passengers during the Hajj period.  Meals served on board will be prepared by THAI’s HALAL kitchen, whereby HALAL meals are prepared with adherence to Islamic dietary requirements, which received HAL-Q certification for HALAL standards for all the special flights.  THAI will organize seven flights departing from Hat Yai International Airport and two flights departing from Narathiwat Airport to Jeddah King Abdulaziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia.
