Announcing a Q1 profit of THB6 billion (US$168.5 million), the pretender said the shareholding to be sold include a 37% stake in Nok Air as well as a 23% stake in Bangkok Aviation Fuel Services.

Meanwhile Thai has delayed the planned entry-into-service for the A350 by one month.

The carrier’s first A350-900 commercial service was to be made on the July 1 rotation between Bangkok and Melbourne, but the date has now been pushed back to August 1.
