The electrical supply to Phuket’s critical transport portal went off at 9am, in direct accordance with the notice by the Phuket Provincial Electricity Authority (PPEA) to shut down power through to 4pm today in order for workers to safely carry out the upgrades.

Power was restored at 12:25pm, confirmed Airport Director Monrudee Gettuphan

“The power is back on at Phuket International Airport for now,” she told The Phuket News.
