Aerothai Vice-President Thinnakorn Chuwong stated that the adjusted air traffic management system being introduced the first time, combined with unpleasant weather conditions, caused the flight delays.

Eighty-five flights were affected: 34 at Don Mueang airport and 51 at Suvarnabhumi aiport. Thai PBS reported that the longest delay was at Suvarnabhumi airport which was 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Thinnakorn said that all passenger backlog had been cleared and the situation had returned to normal by noon.
