Flights out of Don Mueang proceeded without a hitch on Monday, the old Bangkok airport's first day of business after renovations following last year's heavy flood damage.
The budget carrier Thai AirAsia (TAA), which has relocated from Suvarnabhumi Airport, inaugurated its new home with a flight to Bali at 6.15am.
Officials said 281 domestic and international flights used the airport yesterday and they expect 350-370 flights per day in the future.
