South Korean aviation officials said that they plan to conduct a safety inspection of six foreign airlines that have high accident rates and records of poor maintenance.
The measure came after the crash of a plane belonging to PMT Air. Along with PMT Air, five other companies -- Garuda Indonesia, Royal Khmer Airlines, SAT Airlines, Vladivostok Air and Dalavia -- will be subject to inspection due to their records of accidents and maintenance negligence, according to the official.
