Director-General of the Department of Air Transport has ordered additional suspension time of One-Two-Go Airlines’ air travel certification. The airline will be grounded for an additional 30 days. The extension is the third to be handed down to the airline since its initial suspension ended on the 20th of September. The Department of Air Transport holds that the airline has failed to meet safety standards set by the department.

Director of the Office of Air Travel Safety Standards Wutichai Singhamanee (วุฒิชัย สิงหมณี) elaborated on the suspension of One-Two-Go’s certification, saying that the carrier has failed to satisfy safety inspections especially in terms of its manual and disemination of responsibilities. He also revealed that a suspension has extended for the MD-80 Aircraft of Orient Thai Airlines which will be grounded an additional 15 days from the past 20th of September.
