In the evening of October 13th, 2016; the entire nation faced a great loss when the news broke from the Royal Household Bureau’s announcement that His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej passed away at 15.52 hrs. The news caused tremendous grief throughout the Kingdom as the King has always been highly revered by the Thai people for his perseverance in improving lives of his people throughout the 70 years in his reign.
Bangkok Airways Public Company Limited would like to show our gratefulness by adopting his directives and words of wisdom addressed at many places on different occasions into good practice as we drive forth our business towards the future. His Majesty is always regarded as “The Great King of all the Thai people”. Presently, our land of Siam is blessed with the appointment proclamation of His Majesty Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun as the King Rama X, the new King of Thailand. In this occasion, we all wish His Majesty “Long Live The King”.
