The outbound flight (MF869) will operate every Thursday, departing from Tianjin at 9am Beijing Time and arriving in Bangkok at 1.20pm local time.
The return flight (MF870) will depart on the same day from Bangkok at 2.20pm local time and arrive in Tianjin at 8.05pm Beijing Time.
It is the first international flight to Thailand from Tianjin operated by a domestic Chinese airline to return since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, as you already know, the country is still adhering to its strict ‘dynamic-zero’ COVID policies for the time being.
