Thai Airlines International is the national air carrier of Thailand. The carrier's first flight was on May 1, 1960.
Its safety record rates a "A", the highest grade possible, according to Air Rankings Online. Rankings are cumulatives, based on the number of fatal accidents per million flights that the carrier has flown since 1970.
Thai does not have much of a presence in the United States, as most tourists to the country come from Europe. Lufthansa markets Thai Airways in North America.
