Wednesday's Tuesday's runway mishap involving a Nok Air flight forced Trang Airport to remain closed for a second day yesterday. Heavy rain hampered officials' efforts to remove the Boeing 737-800, which slid off a runway and became stuck in mud. Hence they had to remove all the jet fuel to lighten the aircraft and place a metal sheet under the wheel so it could be pulled out. All Nok Air flights servicing the airport have been diverted to Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport, while AirAsia flights have shifted to Krabi Airport.

Travellers and tourists were affected by the incident, especially those planning for the holiday weekend of August 10-12. Airport was trying to solve the problem so that flights could resume in the evening. Seafood operators were also affected but had shifted to using other nearby airports to send their products to customers, but this caused higher transport costs, longer transport times and possible adverse effects on product freshness. Relevant agencies and all involved parties are trying to find measures to prevent a recurrence of the incident. Bangkok-bound flight DD7411 slid off the runway while preparing for takeoff in heavy rain on Tuesday evening. The 142 people on board escaped with no injuries.
