GCAA steps up safety inspections on Thai aircraft and operators

Posted 3 May 2015 · Add Comment

The UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has increased its inspection on airplanes and aviation operators from Thailand following the announcement of safety gaps in the Thai civil aviation system.

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) recently conducted a safety oversight audit on Thailand resulting in the issuance of a significant safety concern (SSC), indicating that Thailand is not providing sufficient safety oversight to ensure the effective implementation of applicable ICAO standards. As a result of this concern the UAE has increased its surveillance on all Thai Operators.

H.E. Saif Mohammed Al Suwaidi, Director General of the General Civil Aviation Authority in the UAE (pictured right) said, “Since the safety of air transport and the UAE public is of paramount importance, all Operators that come into the UAE are inspected on a frequent basis.”

Ismaeil Mohamed Al Balooshi, the Asst. Director General for Aviation Safety Affairs Sector said, “The UAE has increased its inspections on Thai operators. To date, the safety performance of Thai Operators has been satisfactory when operating to the UAE.”
