National carrier Thai Airways International (THAI) will seek cabinet approval to acquire 28 more passenger aircraft for delivery over the next five years.
Montri Chamrieng, vice-president for strategy and sustainable development, said the board of directors has approved the five-year strategic plan to replace retired planes.
Nineteen of the aircraft would be for use by Thai Airways, and nine for its subsidiary THAI Smile. This would maintain the overall size of the in-service fleet at 100 aircraft.
