Thai Airways will commence a daily Airbus A380 service between Sydney and Bangkok in September 16, 2013.
The airline, which takes delivery of the first of six superjumbos this week, had already listed Frankfurt, Tokyo, Paris and Osaka on the A380's official route map.
A spokesperson for Thai Airways confirmed to Australian Business Traveller said that Sydney had been chosen ahead of London as the route for the airline's fifth A380, although London remains on the cards for the sixth superjumbo.
Thai will run the A380 as TG476 out of Sydney, which will depart at 10am for arrival into Bangkok at 4.20pm.
It'll turn around to become the overnight TG475 service, leaving Bangkok at 7.20pm and reach Sydney at 7.20am.
