Samui International Airport has been operating normally with no impact from the power outage on Samui and Phangan resort islands in the Gulf of Thailand that began on Tuesday.
Flights and passenger traffic through the privately owned airport, Thailand's sixth-busiest airport, have continued as usual, officials of Bangkok Airways, which runs the airport, said yesterday.
Like other airports, Samui has its own power generators to run its facilities. It also has supply from the submarine electricity cable that delivers electricity from the mainland to both islands.
The outage was caused by a rupture in the cable, which officials of the Provincial Electricity Authority vowed to fix by midnight yesterday.
Samui airport handles around 36 flights per day for Bangkok Airways, Thai Airways, SilkAir and FireFly.
