Thai Transport Ministry summons Thai Airways to explain LCC JV

Thailand's Transport Ministry has summoned Thai Airways to explain its agreement with Tiger Airways to jointly launch LCC, Thai Tiger Airways (Bangkok Post, 07-Sep-2010). Thai’s senior executives will answer questions from the ministry on 15-Sep-2010. The ministry claims the carrier is yet to clarify some of its issues of concern. Transport Minister, Sohpon Zarum, has insisted Thai provide full details of the JV and has stated that if the deal is found not useful or lawful, it will be stopped. The move comes after the ministry received criticism for the deal from a number of former senior executives of Thai and Deputy Permanent Secretary for Transport, Chaisak Angsuwan.
