THAI unaffected by FAA Category II status of Civil Aviation Administration of Thailand (CAAT)  

          
            Bangkok, 1 December 2015 – Mr. Charamporn Jotikasthira, THAI President, said that due to the result of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) report from the audit of CAAT in October 2015, there remain oversight matters requiring the FAA to issue a Category II status to the CAAT, from Category I.  A Category II status of the CAAT signifies that all air carriers certified under the CAAT are not able to increase flights or operate to new destinations in the United States of America.  

However, for THAI there is no commercial or customer impact as THAI had already ceased operations to its only US destination of Los Angeles as of 25 October 2015.   Although THAI is no longer operating its aircraft to the USA, THAI continues to serve customers through codeshare and interline partners to USA destinations.   

THAI confirms its commitment to aviation safety standards, and assures all that THAI operates with the highest international aviation safety standards.
