Boeing has announced an exclusive pilot training agreement with Thai Airways International (THAI) that will provide training for nearly 50 crews by the end of 2015.

Under the agreement, Boeing Flight Services, a business unit of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, will provide flight training for THAI’s 787-8 fleet at Boeing’s Singapore campus.

Bangkok-based THAI took delivery of its sixth 787-8 in August with two 787-9s to be delivered in 2017.

“We are very pleased to provide THAI with the industry’s best flight training as they expand their 787 fleet,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight Services. “Our Singapore campus is strategically located for airlines in the region to learn from our highly qualified instructors – some of the best in the business.”
