Thai pledges to continue flights to Nordic capitals

Pledge comes after ICAO registers safety concerns
Thai Airways says it will continue to operate as normal to European destinations. It stressed that the European Union had not placed it in its list of airlines banned within the EU, despite the International Civil Aviation Organization posting a red flag on Thailand’s Department of Civil Aviation.
In February, ICAO issued a “Significant Safety Concern” on the Thai department as a result of findings of the Universal Safety Oversight Audit Program.
“In the 25 June 2015 EC press release titled ‘Aviation: Commission updates the EU air safety list’, Thai Airways International was not listed,” the airline said in a statement. “As such, THAI will continue to operate regularly scheduled flights to Europe, which includes these 12 cities in 10 countries: London, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Brussels, Madrid, Munich, Oslo, Paris, Stockholm, Zurich, Milan and Rome.”
Even so, Thai Airways has prepared a “business continuity plan” in all operational areas in case of major operational disruption. It anticipates that Thailand’s Department of Civil Aviation will resolve and correct the findings within the ICAO timeframe, so that Thai carriers can quickly return to normal operations.
“THAI values the public concern on aviation safety, and would like to assure that THAI will continue to operate under high safety standards of the European Aviation Safety Agency,” the airline said.
