Assessing the first week of runway maintenance at the country’s main international airport, President Anirut Thanomkulbutra reported that the repairs caused 104 of the 825 daily flight delays, or approximately 12.6 per cent with 20-30 minute delay on average as projected earlier.

The AoT president assured the public that the runway repairs are expected to be completed and meet the Aug 9 deadline.

A 1.6km section of the eastern runway has been closed for repairs since June 11.

Meanwhile, AoT has coordinated with related agencies to set up operations centres at the airport terminals to provide services and facilitate passengers around the clock until the maintenance is completed.
