Default New thai flights banned

The International Civil Aviation Organisation has issued a remit on concerns about Thai civil aviation safety standards.

In response to this remit Japan, South Korea and Taiwan have banned all new flights until the deficits are rectified and the European Union is expected to do the same.

The emphasis is on new flights for all Thai registered aircraft, and does not apply to existing flights.

The ICAO said that they had been waiting for 10 years for the Thai aviation authorities to rectify the problems outlined and it had issued its edict after unsatisfactory replies from the Thai government.

It appears that there are only 12 officers employed to inspect safety standards on over 1900 aircraft with Thai registrations.

Most of the new flight bans pertain to Air AsiaX Thailand, Orient Thailand, and Skyview Airways.

Sometimes I'm really glad we have a different government now. I', sure they'll handle this quickly, unlike previous governments.
