New non-stop flight from Oslo to Bangkok

From June 15th you may travel directly from Oslo to Bangkok five times a week with Thai Airways.

- After 30 years in Norway, we are happy to offer our Norwegian travelers direct flights to Thailand, says Hilde Hirai, a Thai Airways spokeswoman to the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten.

Thai Airways will fly an Airbus 340-500 from Oslo with 215 passenger seats, 60 in business class, 42 in premium economy class and 113 seats in regular economy.

130 000 Norwegians traveled to Thailand in 2008, and this new service from Thai Airways, signals an optimism that the number of travelers to Thai destinations may increase further the coming years, both for leisure, but also business and particularly the Norwegian oil industry.

Three hours less traveling time

The flight will leave Oslo International airport at 2.55 PM local time, and land at Suvarnabhumi Airport around 7.30 AM the next day, local time. Estimated flight time will be 14 hours and 55 minutes. This will reduce travel time with 3 hours, if compared with the non-stop service offered by Finnair from Helsinki, used by many Norwegians.
