The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) will consider revoking the usage of aircraft by Thai-registered airlines after finding that some are not paying the companies they lease the planes from.
The tough measure aims to avoid lengthy proceedings in court between the leasing companies and troubled airlines which are taking advantage of the judicial proceedings to extend the time they use the planes -- without paying the lease fees -- before a ruling is handed down, CAAT director Chula Sukmanop said Wednesday.
However, he refused to name any airlines.
