Airline price war unlikely amid high operational costsPassengers check in for flights at Don Mueang Airport, Bangkok. (File Photo)Airlines in Thailand are not expected to start another price war in the near future, while the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) plans to maintain ceiling ticket prices despite higher operational costs. This means the ceiling price regulated by the authority would remain the same for at least three years, he said.

Mr Puttipong, also president of Bangkok Airways, said the training cost for each pilot starts at 2.5 million baht.
