The government allocated 392 million baht to the Airports of Thailand Public Company Limited (AoT), with the AoT spending 1.2 billion baht of its own budget to rehabilitate the airport.

The Aeronautical Radio of Thailand LTD has also checked the safety standards of Don Mueang Airport and found that all systems, equipment and facilities were at full readiness to resume operation.

The AoT applied international sanitary standard to kill microbes and odor to ensure the facilities are toxin-free, assisted by the Department of Health, Faculty of Public Health, Mahidol University.

Nok Air chief executive Patee Sarasin said low cost carrier Nok Air would resume 82 normal daily flights at Don Mueang Airport on March 6, beginning at 6 am after it temporarily moved to Suvarnabhumi Airport following the flood.

However, budget carrier Orient Thai Airlines will remain at Suvarnabhumi Airport for some time before later moving back to its base at Don Mueang, mainly used for domestic flights.
