Spend Miles:

Spending miles also changes from 01 October 2019 with newly formatted Award Charts and more online redemption.

All Award travel will be by geographic zone to better enable complete online redemption with THAI and Star Alliance partners. Miles required are for one-way travel, for roundtrip trip travel simply double the stated required miles

For Award travel with THAI or Thai Smile only there are 2 Award Charts:

-Domestic and point to point international travel from/to Bangkok

-Between Domestic and International THAI destinations connecting in Bangkok

Both Award Charts provide the lowest mileage requirements for travel on the THAI and Thai Smile networks within Thailand and internationally.

The Beyond Bangkok with THAI and Star Alliance Award Chart is for multi-sector travel with THAI and Thai Smile, and with Star Alliance partners. Award travel using this chart can be conveniently booked online beginning 01 October 2019.

Lastly, mileage upgrades with THAI and Star Alliance partners will also be conveniently available online using the respective Award charts, each upgrade for single sector upgraded at stated miles.

Current Award levels remain valid for redemption until 30 September 2019, and these Award tickets are valid for 1 year from the date of issue.

On 01 October 2019 new Award charts and mileage requirements will take effect, but remember you can also earn more miles from this date onwards with THAI and selected Star Alliance partners.
