Aeronautical Radio of Thailand (AEROTHAI)

Organisation Overview

Aeronautical Radio of Thailand Limited (AEROTHAI) is a State Enterprise under the Ministry of Transport and Communications. With the consent of the Royal Thai Government, a group of airlines founded AEROTHAI in 1948 to provide air traffic control and aeronautical communication services for airline operations. In 1963, the Government acquired the majority of the Company’s share capital from the founding airlines thereby altering the Company’s status to that of a State Enterprise.

AEROTHAI’s main functions include the provision of air traffic control services and aeronautical telecommunication services within the Bangkok Flight Information Region (FIR) at all provincial airports and certain other areas of responsibility entrusted to AEROTHAI by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). It also performs related services, including:

  • Providing communication equipment for air transportation operations at airports within Thailand and overseas.
  • Designing, manufacturing, and installing customised communication equipments.
  • Carrying out consultancy and training in air traffic control, aeronautical telecommunications, and engineering.
  • Installing and maintaining communication equipments for domestic and international organisations.

Furthermore, AEROTHAI emphasises establishing international co-operation to open up new direct routes to connect Thailand with other parts of the world, enabling more cost-effective and time-efficient flights. This includes the expansion of the Aeronautical Telecommunication Network to provide wider coverage and the continual development of the technology and personnel necessary to keep up-to-date with international standards. Research and development activities in aeronautical telecommunication systems, equipment and services, as well as the development of international co-operation, all contribute to the provision of services that meet customers’ needs.
