Update 3: Oman Air Continues Flights To U-TAPAO Airport In Thailand
Date: 02 December 2008
Oman Air announces the operation of flight on Thursday, 4th of December from U-Tapao airport. Till date, Oman Air has operated three relief flights to U-Tapao Airport located south of Bangkok on 29th and 30th November and 1st December, bringing home over 600 stranded passengers.
Oman Air requests the patience of passengers during lengthy boarding procedures as the infrastructure is not designed to cope with large international passenger airline movements. The Thai authorities and airport staff have been very helpful in ensuring a smooth operation.
The flights although on a limited frequency are designed to assist all Oman Air passengers who are holding return tickets so they can return to Oman or complete their return journeys to other cities. For passengers who have travelled on other airlines, we are accepting registrations in our Bangkok Town reservations office and should space become available they will be ticketed at the Thai Bhat one way market price. Oman Air is closely monitoring the situation in Bangkok and is in constant contact with the airport authorities in Bangkok to resume flights to Suvarnabhumi International Airport, as soon as possible.
U-Tapao International Airport is a public airport approximately 140 km southeast of Bangkok.
For further information please contact the 24 hour Oman Air Contact Center on (+968 - 2453 1111) or Oman Air Bangkok Town office on (+66 - 2635 1222).
Oman Air regrets the inconvenience caused.
