Thai airways failed to maintain ICAO standards
Thai airways failed to maintain the significant safety concerns (SSC) according to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation standards. Thai Airlines were alerted about the issues 90 days before they were red flagged by ICAO. As a consequence the airlines is banned to conduct its flight to China, Japan and South Korea.
Such negligent act can affect the airline’s goodwill, loss of foreign carriers, and loss of higher operating costs, canceled flights and may lose operating licenses as well. Thai Airlines are now working on the issue and showing improvements, so the International Community are aware of their efforts and might not conduct any action that may harm the airlines.
Among ICAO’s 187 countries the organization flagged other 12 nations listed: Lebanon, Malawi, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Uruguay, Kazakhstan, Haiti, Georgia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Botswana and Angola.
