THAI told to hasten new rehab, business plans


Deputy Transport Minister Thaworn Senniam today (October 10) instructed the national flagship carrier Thai Airways International (THAI) to complete its new rehabilitation and business plans within the next 30 days.

Thaworn made the order during a visit to THAI for a briefing of its financial status. 
He also ordered a monthly report on the progress of the carrier's plan to procure new aircraft. 
THAI directors on September 24 asked the executive board of the national carrier for a review of its plan to order 38 more aircraft worth a combined Bt156 billion.
Thaworn added that the new business plan must come with clear details of how to make THAI profitable again and ways to boost customers' satisfaction.
