Royal Orchid Plus (ROP) members holding award tickets issued to travel during 25 March –  31 May 2020 may fully re-credit mileages or change the travel date without any fee or charge with expired miles extended until 30 September 2020.

Passengers may check flight schedules and make changes to itineraries themselves on the thaiairways.com website. For ticket adjustments or more information, ROP members can contact Thai Sales Offices or visit thaiairways.com/rop.

Thai still operates cargo services on some routes and will operate charter flights if there are stranded passengers or requested by government agencies concerned. The company will inform passengers accordingly if there are some flight adjustments.
