A 30-minute power blackout at Don Mueang Airport on Sunday morning delayed 16 flights for about 25-30 minutes, Airports of Thailand (AoT) president Anirut Thanomkulbutr said. 

The blackout was caused by heavy rain and a thunderstorm, putting the arrival and departure lounges in the dark.

The airport has a power backup system, which is used only for essential parts of the airport.
