ABSTRACT

         The thesis has an aim of studying relevant laws and regulations governing a commercial aviation business in Thailand. It is also the purpose of this study to examine whether existing laws and regulations are suitable for  and/or enhance liberalization of commercial aviation in Thailand. The research herein demonstrates a notion of liberalization of commercial aviation in Thailand has been progressively established and followed by successive government, subject to political and legal limitations. In addition, the research finds the relevant laws and regulations governing commercial aviation business are not suitable for liberalization of commercial aviation sector for the reason that the government strictly controls commercial aviation business without giving emphasis on market access and fair competition. This has caused a government monopoly in respect of commercial aviation market which affects consumers welfare so that they are deprived of benefit from market competition. Comments on how Thailand could improve its relevant laws and regulations to be consistent with liberalization of commercial aviation are suggested as follows: 1. the relevant laws and regulations governing commercial aviation business should be deregulated in order to facilitate commercial aviation business, to diminish legal barriers of conducting thereof, and that market mechanism be introduced to the existing government decision making process and, 2. the roles of relevant governmental bodies governing commercial aviation should be properly improved in terms of their independence, transparency, impartiality and accountability.
