Thai Airways has announced a change in its mileage accrual and award tickets chart from October 1.

The adjustment will see its frequent flyer programme members earn miles based on fare tickets and bonus miles based on membership status while increasing the number of miles used to redeem award tickets. 

According to the new mileage accrual, the number of miles that a member earns will depend on the class chosen and fare.  

The higher the price paid for tickets, the more miles the passenger will receive.  

Royal Orchid Plus members will also receive bonus miles for Thai international flights. 

The airline said the changes were necessary to be in line with other airlines’ frequent flyer programmes.  

The new chart for Thai and Star Alliance network will see the number of miles used to redeem award tickets on certain routes increased on an average of 24 per cent. 

With the new awards, members may now redeem one-way award tickets, using 50 per cent of a roundtrip instead of the previously required 68 per cent.

Members may redeem miles based on the current award chart until September 30.
