Penang Seeing Direct Flight Surge
One of Phuket's nearby neighboring resort destinations Penang will get direct flights from Hong Kong on Dragonair by the end of March.
There will be ten weekly flights on the route using Airbus A330-300 aircraft.
Penang's tourism and property markets are seeing increased demand both regionally and domestically driven.
Direct airlift has been a key catalyst behind Phuket's dramatic shift into the mass market.
