The airplane disposal program at Thai Airways is still active.

As part of its ongoing reorganization, Thai Airways International (TG, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi) has sold 19 aircraft, is in the midst of signing contracts to buy and sell another six, and is putting another 12 aircraft up for sale.

Thai Airways International reported that it has sold nine A340s, including both the A340-500 and A340-600 variants, and ten B747-400s since beginning the business rehabilitation process on May 12. This is a transitional court-supervised bankruptcy period similar to Chapter 11, which offers the airline protection from creditors. According to the airline, the buyers still need to receive these planes.

Thai Airways also claims that negotiations to buy and sell six B777-300s are now being negotiated. These aircraft are known as HS-TKA (msn 29150), HS-TKB (msn 29151), HS-TKC (msn 29211), HS-TKD (msn 29212), HS-TKE (msn 29213), and HS-TKF (msn 29214), according to ch-aviation research. At the moment, Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok is housing all six aircraft.

Last but not least, Thai Airways has declared its intention to sell six B777-200s and six A380-800s. HS-TJA (msn 27726), HS-TJB (msn 27727), HS-TJC (msn 27728), HS-TJD (msn 27729), HS-TJG (msn 27732), and HS-TJH (msn 27733) are among the B777-200s that are up for sale. At Bangkok Suvarnabhumi, all vehicles—aside from HS-TJD—are parked. Parked at Bangkok Don Mueang is HS-TJD.

Thai Airways debated whether to put some of their A380-800s back in service but decided against it. As a result, the airline is currently making an effort to resell the aircraft. HS-TUA (msn 87), HS-TUB (msn 93), HS-TUC (msn 100), HS-TUD (msn 122), HS-TUE (msn 125), and HS-TUF (msn 131) are among the six vessels in the fleet that are up for sale. With the exception of HS-TUE and HS-TUF, all of the fleets are at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi, according to ch-aviation’s advanced data. At Utapao Airport, the latter two planes are parked.

Since the start of the pandemic, several airplanes have been parked. Thai Airways has worked diligently to decrease and consolidate its fleet since beginning the business recovery process. It is, however, reactivating a few chosen planes. The airline reactivated one B777-200ER during the first quarter of the year. Additionally, it intends to debut two new A350-900s in the current quarter.  According to Thai Airways, these aircraft will be used on flights to Melbourne Tullamarine, Kunming Changshui, Beijing Capital, Chengdu Tianfu, Guangzhou, and Shanghai Pudong, among other destinations where “passenger demand continues to grow strongly.”
