From today until March 31, Thai Airways International will be operating more flights to Hokkaido and offering special Royal Orchid Holidays (ROH) tour packages for those who want to indulge in winter fun, as well as Japanese visitors wanting to escape the cold.



“THAI will increase its flight frequency on the route between Bangkok and Sapporo from 7 to 10 flights per week, effective immediately. THAI flights have become more and more popular among Japanese passengers travelling to Thailand and therefore resulted in a steady increase in demand for air travel between Thailand and Japan,” says Wiwat Piyawiroj, THAI Executive Vice President, Commercial.

THAI carries a large number of Thai passengers on their way to Sapporo, especially during the winter season. For added passenger comfort and convenience, THAI is offering two Royal Orchid Holidays package tours to Hokkaido: a 3-day 2-night Hokkaido Winter Break package for travel now until March 31, with prices starting at Bt18,700 per person (inclusive of roundtrip air ticket in Economy Class, hotel accommodation, and breakfast, as well as free JR train tickets if the hotel specified in the program is selected) and a 5-day 4-night Hokkaido Snow Forever Fun package with prices starting at Bt36,300  per person (inclusive of roundtrip air ticket in Economy Class, JR train tickets from Sapporo to the airport, ground transportation from the airport to the ski resort, and breakfast), as well as 1,200 complimentary Royal Orchid Plus miles.
