Thai Airways International or THAI insisted on operating the new low cost airline, Thai Tiger Airways, expecting to serve passengers by March 2011.

THAI President Piyasvasti Amranand said the company would proceed with the operation of Thai Tiger Airways, a new joint-venture with Singaporean Tiger Air.

Earlier the Transport Ministry has doubted THAIís decision to establish the new low-cost airline, while the local low-cost airline ďNok AirĒ was still running.

Mr Piyasvasti added that all procedures had been carried out under legal framework and that the company would seek aviation rights from the Department of Civil Aviation, once all process got done.

He further talked about THAIís third quarter performance from July-September, saying the average passengerís occupation was at 75 percent, 1.30% higher than the same period last year. The most troubling issue the THAI President is worried about is the political uncertainties and daily violence. He explained that the situation in Thailand had great influence over travelers whether to come to Thailand or not.

In addition, the THAI board of committee agreed with plans to improve onboard products for long haul flights for the year 2011-2022 to increase the companyís income, competitiveness, and customerís satisfaction. It will focus on comfort and modernity.
