Thailand 'red-flagged' for aviation safety concerns -

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has "red flagged" Thailand over significant safety concerns within the country's aviation sector.

The ICAO, a United Nations agency, issued Thailand a warning in March after an audit raised questions about its ability to oversee airlines under its jurisdiction, giving the country 90 days to address its concerns.

On Thursday it amended its online Safety Audit Information, issuing Thailand a red flag for failing to adequately deal with the situation within that time frame.

In addition to Thailand, only 12 other nations are red flagged by the ICAO --- Angola, Botswana, Djibouti, Eritrea, Georgia, Haiti, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Malawi, Nepal, Sierra Leone and Uruguay.
