Air passengers who are scheduled to fly from Don Mueang airport on Saturday (Oct 14) have been advised to leave at least one and a half hours  for travelling as many spots of Bangkok have been flooded, said Don Mueang airport director Sutheewat Suwanwat.

 

Wing Commander Sutheewat said the flood prevention system which has been installed around the airport is able to cope with a maximum of 600,000 cubic metres of water per day.  Therefore, there is no problem about flooding at the airport on Saturday.

 

However, since many roads in Bangkok have been flood, the passengers’ travel time to the airport may be delayed.  Therefore, the passengers are advised to leave at least one and a half hours before the check-in times, he said.
