On 27 October 2022, H.E. Mrs. Sirilak Niyom, Ambassador of Thailand to Denmark, attended a gala dinner to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Thai Airways’ first destination to Europe, a route Bangkok-Copenhagen. Her Excellency the Ambassador was welcomed by Mr. Wit Kitjathorn, Head of Sales for Europe, and Mr. Ulrik Gylstorff, District Sales Manager, Thai Airways International. On this occasion, Her Excellency the Ambassador congratulated the Thai Airways for serving Bangkok-Copenhagen route which has made a great contribution to the close relations between Thailand and Denmark as well as people connectivity between the two countries for over half a century. She further informed the guests that Bangkok has been voted the “Best Leisure City in the Asia-Pacific” for the 6th consecutive time and Thai Airways was selected as the third on the list of "Best Airline of Asia Pacific" in the Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards 2022. This awards and rankings confirmed the airline’s excellent quality of service and Thailand status as a population travel destination, especially for people from Nordic countries who often travel to Thailand with Thai Airways. Moreover, in conjunction with the signing of the Air Transport Agreement between ASEAN and the European Union on 17 October 2022, Thai Airways is regarded as one of the airlines that flew the most passenger capacity between the two blocs this year.
Representatives from Thai Airways reassured the event's attendees, Danish tour operators and aviation businesses that the airline has now recovered to its full capability of services. It operates daily flights between Bangkok and Copenhagen and is continuously developing airline’s potentials in various fields to increase competitiveness after the Covid-19 pandemic hit all airlines worldwide.
 
Thai Airways International Ltd. was inaugurated in 1960 as a joint venture between Thai Airways Company (TAC), Thailand’s domestic carrier, and Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), which assumed a 30 percent shareholding in the new subsidiary. The aim of this venture was to create an international element for the domestic carrier. SAS also provided operational, technical and managerial expertise with training aimed at building an independent national airline. Thai Airways began its first destination to Europe on 6 June 1972 with the Bangkok-Copenhagen route. Its historical tie with SAS during the founding period is regarded as one of the symbols of close cooperation and friendship between Thailand and Denmark.
