Thai Airways (THAI) will accommodate Thai mourners across the country in paying their final respects to His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej at the royal cremation.

Noting that  October 26 has been declared a public holiday to allow the public the opportunity to join the royal cremation ceremony, the airline’s acting president Usanee Sangsingkeo said that THAI would be offering special companion fares to passengers who wish to attend the royal cremation ceremony at the Grand Palace. The special companion fares are on THAI flights from Chiang Mai, Phuket, and Krabi to Bangkok, for a minimum of two adults at prices beginning at Bt1,390 per seat (airport tax and charges included).  Reservations are being accepted until October 29 for travel during October 10-30.

During the royal cremation ceremony, ticket conditions apply whereby roundtrip tickets are valid until October 30 and confirmed reservations must be made with established flight dates and departure times. A one-time only flight date and time change is allowed free of charge, while rerouting and refund is not allowed. There are a limited amount of seats available per flight for promotional fares. Passengers may accumulate mileage based on Royal Orchid Plus conditions.

For further information, reservations, and ticketing assistance, visit, contact any THAI sales office or travel agent, or call the THAI Contact Center (02) 356 1111 (24 hours a day).
