Thai Airways (THAI) has announced the creation of a sub-brand airline called Thai Smile yesterday.

Ampon Kittiampon, chairman of the airline’s board, said the board had approved the establishment of the airline, which is a business unit affiliated with THAI.

Thai Smile will start flying in July next year. Mr Ampon characterised it as a light-premium airline segmented between full-service and low-cost.

THAI president Piyasvasti Amranand said the moniker was chosen from 2,229 entries in a naming contest.

He said Thai Smile will operate using THAI’s TG airline code with 11 Airbus A320 planes in its fleet, four of which are slated for delivery next year.
