  • Thai Smile, Thai Airways’ new low-cost subsidiary that is to be positioned as a premium regional carrier, took over a domestic service from its parent airline on 16 August. From its Bangkok (BKK) base, the A320 operator now flies twice-daily to Surat Thani (URT) in the south of Thailand. Thai Airways previously operated the route with 149-seat, two-class 737-400s, whereas Thai Smile’s aircraft are configured with 174 seats in an all-economy configuration. Competition comes from Thai AirAsia’s also twice-daily flights.
