TAIPEI, Taiwan — The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA, 民航局) gave TransAsia Airways (復興航空) until Tuesday, Nov. 29, to make their case before the agency revokes the stricken airline’s domestic and international flying rights.

A TransAsia spokesperson said Monday the firm currently has no plans to resume operations.

The CAA had previously fined the troubled airline NT$3 million for its abrupt shutdown and announced that it would revoke all of its flying rights, but will give the airline a revocation hearing period for it to raise opinions as regulated.

If TransAsia fails to respond or to provide a sufficient reason to justify its violation of the Civil Aviation Act (民航法), the CAA said it would seek approval from the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC, 交通部) to immediately revoke and redistribute the airline’s flying rights.    [FULL  STORY]
