Orient Thai Airlines and its budget subsidiary One-Two-Go Airlines remain grounded. The Thai Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) extended the suspension of Orient Thai’s operating licence for another 15 days. One-Two-Go’s licence was suspended for a further 30 days.
DCA deputy director-general Wuthichai Singhamanee said the two privately owned airlines had still not complied with the changes they were ordered to make to their organisational structure, internal auditing and quality controls. The two airlines however have been able to meet the main hurdle, safety standards. (Bangkok Post)
