The industry has been advised to update their clients of possible delays at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport from 11 June to 10 August this year.
Destination Asia explained that one of the airport’s runways will be closed for maintenance during the period and airlines and agents should advise travellers to allow a minimum of 80 minutes for connecting flights in Bangkok.
The bureau said flights could also be put on hold for 20-45 minutes during peak periods but expects no cancellations or widespread disruption.
“Aviation officials are reportedly planning to use Don Muang Airport to ease congestion during the 60 days maintenance period although no official announcement has been made yet,” the company said.
