Was the MD aircraft in question not equipped for a fully blind landing in zero visibility or does Phuket airport not have the necessary equipment installed?

Surely in a similar situation at say Gatwick Airport there would be no problem with landing in near non existent visibility.
Zero visibility in heavy rain, thunderstorm and windshear is completely different than zero visibility in fog with nil wind.
