To help regain its profitability and pay off many debts as planned, Thai Airways has to receive new funding or credit for millions of baht, following the court’s approval. The first multi-million baht loans are reportedly supported by the government or any government sector.

The remaining multi-million baht loans are supported by the private sector. The condition of the new loan is not more than 6 years, with the first annual repayment accountable from the 3rd year of its first withdrawal.
