Thai Airways International will adjust a number of services for the upcoming winter scheduling period, which commences on 26 October.

The carrier will raise its Bangkok-Hyderabad services from five to six times weekly, and increase Bangkok-New Delhi frequency from 12 to 14 times weekly. On the Bangkok-Madrid route, it will operate a fourth weekly frequency until 12 January 2015. This will then be followed by increasing the Bangkok-Kolkata and Bangkok-Jakarta services from daily to 10 times weekly, starting 10 December onwards.

FlightMaps Analytics shows that the carrier is the only operator on the Bangkok-Hyderabad route. It competes with Air India, IndiGo and Jet Airways on the Bangkok-New Delhi route, and with SpiceJet and Bhutan Airlines on the Bangkok-Kolkata route. On the Bangkok-Jakarta route, it competes with Garuda Indonesia.

The airline will deploy Boeing 777s to replace 747-400s on routes from Bangkok to Mumbai and Tokyo Haneda, while redeploying the 747-400s on one of two daily Bangkok-Beijing services. The Bangkok-Seoul Incheon-Los Angeles service will be upgauged from 777-200ERs to -300ERs, while the Bangkok-Bengaluru service will switch from 777-200ERs to Airbus A330-300s.

At the same time, the A320s will replace 737-400s on the Bangkok-Gaya-Varanasi and Bangkok-Penang services.

Earlier plans to operate Bangkok-Dusseldorf flights have now been cancelled, the airline says.
