AOT Board Chairman Sita Divari told journalists on Monday that he discussed the incident of the Airbus A330-300 plane from Guangzhou to Bangkok, with the Department of Civil Aviation and THAI and decided that the eastern runway of the Suvarnabhumi Airprot needs to be closed for about 48 hours for the removal of the damaged plane and runway repair.

According to the AOT board chair, planes which are smaller than Boeing 737 aircraft can still use the affected runway for takeoffs.

The AOT board chair announced that the removal of the troubled plane and the repair of the 300-meter-long damaged section of the runway were set to be finished by noon on September 11, and that, during the runway closure, Don Mueang and U-Tapao airports will become backup facilities for airplanes which cannot wait.
