Thai Airways International Public Company Limited, also trading as THAI (บริษัท การบินไทย จำกัด (มหาชน)) is the flag carrier airline of Thailand. THAI Airways International has its origins in 1960 as a joint venture between Scandinavian Airlines System SAS, which held a 30 percent share of the new company valued at 2 million Thai baht, and Thailand's domestic carrier, Thai Airways Company (เดินอากาศไทย). The purpose of the joint venture was to create an international wing for the domestic carrier Thai Airways Company. SAS also provided operational, managerial, and marketing expertise, with training assistance aimed at building a fully independent national airline within the shortest possible time. On 1 April 1977, after 17 years of capital participation by SAS, the Thai government bought out the remaining of SAS-owned shares and THAI became an airline fully owned by the Thai government. On 1 April 1988, was merged the international and domestic operations of the two companies to form the present company, Thai Airways International. The company is one of the first members of the Star Alliance. THAI launched a regional carrier under the name Thai Smile in the middle of 2012 and closed in 2023 by merged back into THAI.
