Thai Airways International, or trading as THAI, is the flag carrier of Thailand that was formed in 1960 as a joint venture between Thai Airways Company and the Scandinavian Airlines System. In 1988, the airline merged with its parent company and domestic carrier of Thailand, Thai Airways Company and becoming the domestic and international airline that we know today. The airline primarily operates from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, while its headquarter office is located in Vibhavadi Rangsit Road, Chatuchak District, Bangkok. From its hubs in Suvarnabhumi Airport and Phuket International Airport, the airline flies to up to more than 60 destinations in countries all over the world not limited to the ones located in Asia but also Europe. In 1960, Thai Airways Company (TAC) that serves the domestic flight routes in Thailand arrived at an agreement with the Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) to form a joint venture to create an airline that will serve the international routes. SAS used to own 30% share of capital in Thai Airways International, which gradually decreases over the years. In 1977, the Thai government bought out the remaining SAS share in the airline, making Thai Airways fully government-owned. However, in 1991 the airline was listed in the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) allowing the people to buy their share in the airline. As for the airline’s route history, its inaugural flight was from Bangkok to 9 overseas destinations in Asia from Bangkok in 1960, followed by the first intercontinental flight to Australia in 1971. Not long after, the airline launched its flight to Europe in 1972, and North America in 1980. However, the flights to North America have been stopped and restarted throughout the years, citing issues such as the high fuel cost as the reason. The last attempt to restart the flights to North America was in 2012 from Seoul to Los Angeles.
