The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) today announced that Thai AirAsia (TAA), Thailand’s largest low-cost carrier, has become the second Thai-registered international airline to complete the recertification of its air operator’s certificate (AOC).

Working in partnership with CAA International (CAAi), the advisory arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA), TAA follows Bangkok Airways, who became the first airline to be recertified to ICAO’s international safety standards earlier this year.

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.

Thailand is expected to be audited by ICAO later this year to address the Significant Safety Concern (SSC) finding from 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 will work 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.
