Thai Lion Air flight aborts landing in 12-knot winds
Thai Lion Air’s Flight SL620 aborted a landing at Ubon Ratchathani International Airport on Tuesday morning apparently because of strong winds.
The flight left Don Mueang Airport at 7.55am and was scheduled to land at 8.55am.
Airport officials said the flight flied in two circles before returning to Don Mueang.
Ubon Ratchathani airport director Kittichai Sajjalak said the wind speed at the airport was about 12 knots on Tuesday morning, which did not exceed safety levels. He added that other airlines had landed at the airport but that decision depended on the decision of a pilot whether to abort a landing.
