B20m to fix Don Mueang damage

B20m to fix Don Mueang damage

Initial estimates to repair damage at Don Mueang airport caused by a fierce storm this week have been put at 20 million baht, a Transport Ministry senior official said yesterday.

Pisak Jitviriyavasin, deputy permanent secretary, said the figure was only a preliminary estimate of the damage made after an inspection following the storm which occurred on Monday.

A torrential downpour accompanied by strong winds caused the partial collapse of a roof and wall at the airport's new service hall building. No injuries were reported in the incident.

The hall, intended for tour group passengers, was completed in June 2020 but the building has yet to open due to Covid-related restrictions on air travel.
