The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) today announced that low-cost carrier Nok Air, has been successfully recertified to the international safety standards of ICAO. Nok Air is the sixth of Thailand’s international airlines to receive its 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 next ICAO audit.

Mr Rob Erskine, Acting Head of International Operations (Asia) for CAAi said, “With over 27 destinations and the largest number of domestic routes within Thailand, we are pleased Nok Air has satisfied CAAT’s requirements in accordance with ICAO standards. As we enter the next phase of this significant project, we are fully committed to supporting CAAT ahead of its impending ICAO audit.”

Thailand is expected to be audited by ICAO in 2017 to address the Significant Safety Concern (SSC) finding in 2015. CAAi will be providing audit preparation assistance to CAAT to help resolve the 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 are in the strongest position for its next ICAO audit.
