BANGKOK, Sept 12 (Reuters) – Thailand’s military government used its executive power on Tuesday to suspend international flights of Thai airlines that have not received operator certificates from the country’s aviation body, a government spokesman said.

The suspension came ahead of a U.N.’s International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) visit to Thailand next week, from September 20 to 27.

“They want to see a strict measure. The government had to order the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand to suspend operations of airlines which did not pass assessment,” government spokesman Sansern Kaewkumnerd told reporters.
