Thai Airways International Plc. (THAI) expects that after Suvarnabhumi Airport opens on September 28 the number of its premium passengers will increase dramatically.

THAI applies the title ‘premium passenger’ to those in its royal and first class seating, and have created a number of amenities for these travellers at the new airport.

The first check-in island, located on the western end of the passenger terminal, will be dedicated to THAI’s premium travellers. While waiting to receive their boarding passes, premium passengers will be able to wait in a specially designated antechamber.

Also located near the first check-in island are five conference rooms and a spa with a sauna room.

“We believe the number of premium passengers on our flights will increase by at least ten per cent per year. Right now we serve about 1.3 million of these passengers each year,” said Wanchai Sarathulthat, transport ministry permanent secretary and THAI’s board chairman. When everything is ready, premium passengers can use a special gate to board aircraft too,” said Wanchai.

He added that THAI is ready to provide its royal and first class passengers with luxury service and convenience. (TNA)
