Japan Agrees To Postpone May 31 Deadline Banning Thai Airlines

The proposed ban over aviation safety concerns that was set to take effect May 31st has been indefinitely postponed after meetings between Thai and Japanese officials.

Since initial talks took place, the Thai airlines have been monitored closely, with checks of both pilot and aircraft quality. Current services are still running as normal but the airlines are not allowed to add more routes or change the aircraft types currently flying them.

The airlines need to match international standards after the International Civil Aviation Organization detected safety flaws with Thai Aviation systems. The airlines that are able to continue flying normal schedules are Asia Atlantic, Asian Air, Jet Asia, Nok Scoot, Thai Airways International and Thai AirAsia X.

This comes following an audit carried out in January, which has led to South Korea imposing flight bans to and from Thailand. A full audit is expected to be carried out in 2016, while Minister of Transport Prajin Juntong has vowed all issues will be addressed as early as June.
