BANGKOK, 19 February 2013 (NNT) – Tour operators have demanded a 100-million-baht compensation from private airline PC Air following a row that left 400 Thai passengers stranded at Incheon International Airport in October last year.

According to the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA), operators have travelled to the Ministry of Transport to file complaints against the airline after it failed to pay the amount demanded by tour groups. The agency and tour operators have been unable to reach PC Air’s executives for comments on the matter.

Transport Minister Chatchart Sitthiphan is expected to summon the airline’s management to a meeting with the Consumer Protection Board and the Crime Suppression Division.

The DCA stated that it would not renew PC Air’s license until compensation is fully paid to relevant parties.
