Thailand downgraded for safety reasons by FAA

Jump to last reply

The FAA (U.S. aviation agency) has announced that it is downgrading Thailand to "Category 2," saying that Thailand no longer meets the safety standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). This means that the FAA has significant concerns about Thailand's oversight of Thai's airlines, Countries with Category 2 designations are not allowed to increase their service to the U.S., which means that, for example, Thai Airways could not at this time resume flights to the U.S. even if it wanted to. (Sort of a moot point, as Thai is in deep financial trouble, anyway.)

This probably means nothing for most people, though it's an embarrassment for the military who run the government. Still, it wouldn't be surprising if some people with a choice between a Thai airline and a different carrier would feel a bit safer with the non-Thai airline.

Here's the FAA press release: https://www.faa.gov/news/press_releases/news_story.cfm?newsId=19814
