Business Air is a charter airline based at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand.

History[edit]

Business Air was formed in 2008 to accommodate the tourism industry and other aviation charter services. It was granted the Air Operator License and Air Operator Certificate from Department of Civil Aviation (Thailand) (DCA) in November 2009, permitting international operations, with its first flight on December 2009.[1]

The carrier has since experienced financial difficulties, with the unpaid fees of fuel surcharge, air traffic control services and aircraft lessors for more than 1 Billion THB (approx. 30.7 Million USD), which cause the DCA to ordered Business Air to suspend its operation on 16 January 2015, leaving more than 1,000 passengers affected.[2] However on 27 January 2015, the company has been allowed to resume operations while there are still ongoing disputes over unpaid debts.[3]
