Thai Airways International is putting 34 of its aircraft up for sale, likely to raise cash and get rid of no longer needed planes. These include several different widebody aircraft types.

Ten Boeing 747-400 are listed as well. Until recently, the airline was operating a fleet of eight 747, all of which, plus two already retired ones, are now up for auction. Also on sale are one Airbus A300, three A340-500, six A340-600, two Boeing 737-400, six 777-200 and six 777-300. The deadline for potential buyers is November 13th.

Some of the airplanes on Thai’s list had already been withdrawn from service and were stored without use for a longer period of time, even years before the Coronavirus crisis hit the company.

Thai Airways did not provide further details regarding the sale.
