Flight delays at Suvarnabhumi

All outbound flights from Suvarnabhumi are being delayed until the airport's eastern runway reopens on Wednesday, by which time damage caused by the crash-landing of a Thai Airways International flight should be repaired.

Deputy Transport Minister Gen Prin Suvanadat said flights should return to normal at 9am on Wednesday after the surface of the eastern runway is repaired and the stricken aircraft removed from the site.

Part of the runway has been closed since the crash on Sunday and is open only to small aircraft. Up to 30 minute delays on outbound flights and 15 minute delays on incoming flights are expected until the entire runway is back in service.
