About Thai Airways Business Class To The UK & Europe

Since launching a full lie-flat Business Class seat on its Dreamliner service between Auckland and Bangkok, Thai Airways has experienced a renaissance in popularity with travellers to the UK and Europe.  As a destination or stopover, Bangkok (and Thailand generally) remains a popular value for a money holiday destination for New Zealanders wanting to experience Thai culture, cuisine, shopping and beaches. 

Why Choose Thai Airways

As a Star Alliance member, Thai Airways allows Air New Zealand Airpoints members the opportunity to earn Airpoints and have their tier status recognised.  

Fine Travel has a close relationship with Thai Airways in New Zealand and we promote their latest Business Class specials.  This relationship means that when their specials are sold out on flights, we can work with the airline's revenue management team and have a good success rate in obtaining confirmations.


Experience Business Class

The Thai Airways Business Class cabin is called Royal Silk Class. From between Auckland and Bangkok, the lie-flat seat onboard the Dreamliner provides the opportunity to arrive refreshed. Lounge access is provided in Auckland and Bangkok and the UK / Europe for Business Class passengers.

Secure Specials with Fine Travel

At Fine Travel we work closely with Thai Airways to secure the latest Business Class discounts to the UK and Europe for our clients.  Through a direct relationship with Thai Airways’ New Zealand based team we can:

  • Save our clients time by investigating travel dates that meet their needs and fit with discounts available.

  • Provide comprehensive itineraries that can be held before payment is required (when compared with the instant purchase option online).

Should you require any date changes, special requests (such as allowances for allergies) or a stopover, we can also arrange these for you, saving time working with Thai Airways’ call centre.

Stopping Over in Thailand

With many of our clients escaping the New Zealand winter for the UK / Europe summer, a beach holiday stopover in Thailand becomes a natural part of the journey. By connecting with Thai Airways domestic/regional network a comprehensive itinerary is possible.  As a full-service travel agency, Fine Travel can assist with your accommodation and transfers too.
