THAI, Kuwait Airways Launch Codeshare Agreement

DALLAS — On June 25, Thai Airways International (TG) and Kuwait Airways (KU) announced the launch of their new codeshare agreement. 

Under partnership, TG’s code will be displayed on KU flights between Kuwait City (KWI) and Bangkok (BKK), European routes, including flights between Kuwait City and Athens, and Kuwait City and Rome. As a result, TG will be able to sell seats on KU flights operating said routes. 

In turn, KU's code will be displayed on TG’s flights between Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur; starting on June 26, Kuwait Airways will also be able to market these flights.

Furthermore, depending on government approval, TG and KU will be able to provide codeshare flights on more routes between KWI and the Middle East and between KWI and Europe. Kuwait Airways' codeshare destinations include Amman, Dubai, Jeddah, Riyadh, Cairo, Casablanca, and Milan. 

Kuwait Airways will also codeshare and market flights operated by TG from BKK to South Korea and the Far East.
