A small number of international flights are likely to be affected by ongoing repair work that’s ongoing at Krabi International Airport in Thailand. The repairs began yesterday (6/3/18) and are expected to take approximately one week to complete.
Krabi airport has scheduled the repairs along with general maintenance work, to mend and renew the existing runway. One spot in particular need of attention is the u-turn where the planes take off and land, as it is becoming cracked and worn due to the 100 international and domestic flights that pass through the airport each day. Runway 32 and 14 each feature a crack and some surface damage.
Over the next week, the whole 3,000-metre stretch of runway will get an overhaul. All airlines affected by the repair work have already been notified and have adjusted their schedules accordingly.
