Trang Airport director Thaworn Saeng-ampai said workmen were able to free the aircraft from soggy soil alongside the runway around 6pm yesterday. Moving the aircraft meant the airport resumed operations immediately, encouraging passengers who had waited.
The incident forced airport to shut down for two days. Passengers were moved to board planes at Krabi and Nakhon Si Thammarat airports.
Damage from Tuesday's incident is yet to be estimated, the airport director said.
He said the retrieval took eight hours. No damage was found to the aircraft which is now awaiting a check-up and then to be taken back to Bangkok later.
An investigation of the cause of the incident depends on the Civil Aviation Department and the airline, which Mr Thaworn said could take some time.
