Krabi International Airport will fix its runway from midnight tomorrow (March 6) onward. The process is expected to take about one week. Only about 5-6 international flights are expected to be affected.

The Director of Krabi International Airport, Attaporn Nuang-Udom, revealed that the runway where the damage is located is at the U-turn point before the plane takes off and the reason of the crack is the high amount of flights taking off and skidding their tyres around the U Turn point, which is about 100 times per day from international and domestic traffic.

There are 2 spots needing to be repaired, including runway 32 and runway 14 (either end of the single runway), which are made of asphaltic concrete. Each of them has a 3×5 metre crack and surface damage.

The whole 3,000 metre runway will also get general maintenance at the same time. The airlines of each affected flight have been informed about the process already.
