The Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) has agreed to a proposal for the flexible use of military airspace, allowing commercial flights through restricted areas, the Aeronautical Radio of Thailand (Aerothai) says. 

Aerothai president Sarinee Sangprasit said the agency, which controls national air traffic, has spent more than 10 years discussing with the RTAF how the flexible use of the airspace can contribute to the country's interests.

She said Aerothai is switching from ground-based air navigation technology to satellite-based technology to accommodate the growing demand for air travel.
