Thai Airways back at Brussels Airport as of December

As of December 1st, Thai Airways will again offer daily direct passenger flights between Brussels Airport and Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. This important destination, also offered before the covid pandemic, is an important addition to Brussels Airport’s intercontinental network. As a Star Alliance airline, Thai Airways strengthens Brussels Airport’s role as a European hub. Thailand remains an important tourist destination that is now once again directly accessible to Belgian passengers.

After a four-year hiatus in the wake of the covid pandemic, Brussels Airport may once again welcome Thai Airways. This Star Alliance airline was already operating at Brussels Airport until before the covid pandemic and now chooses Brussels Airport again as their hub within the Benelux.

‘It is great news to welcome Thai Airways back to Brussels Airport. This daily direct connection to Bangkok strengthens our position as a European hub and offers our passengers even more travel options to Asia. For Thai passengers too, our airport offers an ideal gateway to the rest of Europe. We look forward to a great collaboration.’ says Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport.

As from 1 December 2024, Thai Airways will immediately start with a daily flight to Bangkok. The route will be flown with a Boeing 787-8, one of the most efficient aircraft on the market both in terms of emissions and noise.

For Brussels Airport, this offers an important addition to its intercontinental network as a major destination, both for tourism as for business travel. As a Star Alliance airline, Thai Airways is also strengthening its Star Alliance hub at Brussels Airport with home carrier Brussels Airlines. This will reconnect Thai Airways directly to the heart of Europe, with all its European and international institutions and the network offered by their Star Alliance partners at Brussels Airport to the rest of Europe and beyond.
