Airport operations[edit]

Departures area

On 10 February 2016 the Krabi Airport terminal was plunged into darkness for over six hours, from 09:00-15:30 due to an electrical power outage. The Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) had notified Krabi Airport two days in advance that it would shut down power in the area for maintenance. Airport authorities activated back-up generators, but they did not work. Krabi's airport director stated after the event that management will rent generators in the future to prevent blackouts from happening. With no power for their computers, immigration officials were unable to access immigration databases and were forced to write down details of 2,000 passengers for later vetting. The deputy national police chief in charge of security, Pol Col Srivara Ransibrahmanakul, assured the public that a follow-up check showed that no blacklisted people were allowed into the country during the incident.[10]
