Thai Airways will acquire 37 new planes over the next six years at a cost of £2.4 billion.

It is planned that the airline will buy six Boeings and nine Airbuses, as well as leasing a further twenty-two.

The new fleet of planes will become equal to 40% of the company's total assets, and they will be used on intercontinental, regional and short-haul flights.

"The new planes will permit the company to be in the top three leading airlines in Asia and top five leading airlines in the world, both in terms of quality and services efficiency," Thai Airways said.
