The company was founded at the beginning of the 1960s, and since 2006, its homeport is Suvarnabhumi Airport located in Bangkok, which is considered to be one of the most modern airports across the globe.

Thai Airlines aims to make their customers’ flights as comfortable as possible, so the company prioritizes safety, high-quality service, and comfort, at every step of the process. That brought the air carrier to get the title of the best airline in Southeast Asia twice, in 2011 and 2012.

1960 – 1975

The original logo for Thai Airlines International, designed in 1979, featured a traditional Thailand symbol — a dancer, enclosed into a circular frame. The design, nicknamed “The Dancing Man”, featured a solid gold figure on a white background, in a thin blue framing, with a bold italicized “Thai” written in capitals of a sharp sans-serif typeface, across the dancer’s body. This badge stayed with the air carrier for more than a decade.

1975 – 2005

The emblem developed by Walter Landor Associates featured a purple, magenta, and gold “jumpee,” which was based on the country’s traditional imagery, including its gold temples, tropical orchids, and luxurious silk.

In 2005, the emblem was updated, keeping the idea of the previous badge, but making it more modern and clean. The colors were slightly modified as was the typeface, which became lighter and better legible. The purple became dark and deep, adding professionalism and confidence to the look. As for the wordmark, it is now set in the uppercase and uses a sophisticated font with slightly elongated and sharpened ends of the bars.
