Suvarnabhumi resumes normal services
Bangkok Airways passenger, Pongkarn Kositthammanan, owned the bag that burst into flames at Suvarnabhumi Airport this morning, according to the transport authorities.
Pongkarn is the owner of Pongkarn Alliance Co Ltd, a nutrition company. He was about to board flight PG931, scheduled to leave Bangkok at 7.55am to Phnom Penh.
Caretaker Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt attributed the flame to the combustion of fertilisers stored in the bag.
It was reported that the bag contained packages of organic fertiliser. It burst into flame while on the baggage conveyor belt.
AOT and related agencies will further investigate the incident, she said.
