Flights resume at Bangkok Arport

The week long siege at Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok has ended after a court ruled to dissolve the current government coalition and the PM stepped down from office. The first flight touched down yesterday bringing 300 passengers from Phuket, raising hopes for the 300,000 passengers who have been stranded.

Differing reports suggest it will take from two days and eleven days to get the airport fully functioning again as it must be cleaned, swept for any dangerous materials and computer systems must be started again. In the meantime many flights to Thailand are being routed via Phuket.
