The flight was diverted to Chumphon airport, where it landed safely, the airline’s public relations section said.
Nok Air offered three options for passengers - transfer to another Nok Air flight scheduled to leave Chumphon for Bangkok at 8pm, a bus to take passengers to Bangkok, and refunds for passengers wanting to cancel the trip.
The airline is investigating the cause of cracks.
