Thai owned PC Air whose only aircraft was grounded in Seoul over delayed payment of airport facility fees including refueling expenses may have its licence revoked if found to have violated aviation regulations, Deputy Transport Minister Chatchart Sithipan said on Thursday.
Mr Chatchart said he would invite Department of Civil Aviation director-general Woradej Harnprasert to a meeting Friday to discuss whether the airline had violated aviation laws and whether its temporary licence, which expires on Oct 31, should be revoked.
He would also ask the department to make an assessment again on Oct 31 of whether the airline’s licence should be renewed and whether the Thai carrier would be able to restore people’s confidence in its organisation.
