The government has congratulated national flag carrier Thai Airways International (THAI) for being voted the World’s Most Improved Airline at Skytrax World Airline Awards.

Government spokesperson Sansern Kaewkamnerd announced that THAI was presented two prestigious and coveted awards in the Skytrax 2016 World Airline Awards ceremony at Farnborough International Airshow as the World’s Most Improved Airline and the World’s Best Airline Lounge Spa Facility.

THAI was also placed in top three in three categories: Best Economy Class Onboard Catering – for the quality of meals, quality of food, beverage selections and visual presentation; Best Airline Staff Service in Asia – for staff service efficiency, friendliness and service hospitality and overall consistency; and World’s Best Airport Services.

He said that THAI is yet to proceed with its organizational reform plan, which has been implemented since 2015 and is now in its second phase to enable the company to achieve the highest excellence in all dimensions.

The government spokesman also said that Thailand has attempted to correct all issues raised by the International Civil Aviation Organization, according to plans from the Department of Civil Aviation of Thailand.

The government has selected personnel with qualifications to be staffed at the DCA while hiring organizations and experts to help inspect and assess the issuance of aviation licenses, he said.

He added that the review of the issuance of licenses for 28 aviation business operators and the preparation for the next ICAO assessment during December this year and March next year are now in progress.

The government spokesman said the ICAO has already expressed appreciations over Thailand’s serious actions and visions to address all problems.
