Nok Air to cancel all flights between Phuket and the Thai capital until at least 31 October.

The immediate cancellation is only temporary, said Prathuang Sornkham, who returned to his position of director at Phuket International Airport about a week ago.

If the water does not recede, the flights will remain cancelled until the situation returns to normal.

The runway at Don Mueang being flooded would not affect other flight services between Bangkok and Phuket.

However, not clarify whether or not Nok Air would try to resume flights to and from Phuket via Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Meanwhile, Orient Thai Airlines, which also operates flights to Phuket from Don Mueang Airport, states on its website that it has moved operations to Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Passengers can check-in at Row D, Level 4 at the Departure Hall.

According to the latest flight schedule posted, flight times for all Orient Thai flights to and from Phuket remain unchanged.

Mr Prathuang’s return to duty at Phuket Airport follows an Airports of Thailand (AoT) disciplinary investigation regarding a group of South American passengers who flew out of Phuket without passports.

During the investigation, Wing Commander Prathuang was transferred to Bangkok and became a “Senior Specialist 10” AoT executive.
