Thailand has handed over complete responsibility for air traffic control services to Aeronautical Radio of Thailand (Aerothai), unifying for the first time coverage of the country's entire flight information (FIR) region and at all 37 civil airports.

The decision removes approach and aerodrome control at 31 municipal airports from the Department of Aviation and provides state-run enterprise Aerothai with centralised responsibility for ATC, communications and aeronautical information.
