TAIPEI, Taiwan — Premier Lin Chuan on Wednesday said the government would likely hold the Civil
Aeronautics Administration (CAA, 民航局) accountable for negligence ahead of TransAsia’s (復興航空) shock announcement that it was closing due to financial difficulties.
The statement came a day after the Executive Yuan declared its support for the CAA’s administration, saying the aviation body had done nothing wrong.
Lin was asked to comment about TransAsia’s closure while he was visiting the Taiwan International Machine Tool Show Wednesday morning.
He said the CAA, Taiwan’s aviation authority, needed to reflect on its own handling of TransAsia.
The Executive Yuan did not receive information from the CAA regarding TransAsia’s plan to suspend flights on Tuesday, Lin said. [FULL STORY]
