Thai Airways Rents Out Simulators To The Public


Thai Airways is opening the company’s Airbus and Boeing flight simulators to the public. The airline is looking for sources of income now that it is severely hit as a result of the corona crisis.

Starting next month, those interested can virtually fly an Airbus A380, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 747-400 or Boeing 737-400. Prices start from 325 euros for two people for half an hour, Bloomberg news agency reports. The Thai website states that the simulators can be used 24 hours a day.

The 60-year-old airline faces one of its biggest challenges as travel restrictions plague Thailand’s tourism industry. In May it was announced that Thai will reorganize, in order to become financially healthy again. This is done under the supervision of a bankruptcy judge.

The airline, which is 48 percent state owned, was already in dire straits before the corona crisis. The COVID-19 outbreak caused additional blows to the company, as flight operations virtually came to a standstill and revenues dried up.
