Bangkok, Thailand. 29 September 2017 — The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) announced that private jet operator MJets and a cargo airline K-Mile Air, have been successfully recertified to the international safety standards of ICAO.
Both carriers have received the Air Operations Certificate (AOC) as part of CAAT’s recertification programme, in partnership with CAA International (CAAi), the advisory arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA).
CAAi was appointed by CAAT in 2016 to provide full-scale technical assistance and capacity building in the recertification of all Thai registered international airlines and to support CAAT ahead of its ICAO audit, which was conducted earlier this week. The final report is expected over the coming weeks.
CAAi has been providing audit preparation assistance to CAAT to help resolve the Significant Safety Concern (SSC). Through a combination of on and off-site assistance, CAAi are working with CAAT to raise Thailand’s level of effective implementation across all of ICAO’s eight “critical elements”, with the initial focus on the SSC and related areas, ensuring CAAT were in the strongest position for its recent ICAO audit.
