The Thai national carrier temporarily suspended night flights between London Heathrow and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi at the start of the month when it introduced the route’s only direct daily A380 service.
But the addition of the Boeing 777 in the airline’s vacant TG917/916 slot means passengers will once again have two options a day when it comes to flying THAI between the two cities.
TG917 will depart Heathrow’s Terminal 2 at 21:35pm, arriving in Bangkok at 16:00pm, while TG916 will depart Bangkok at 13.20pm, arriving in London at 19:35pm.
