Reports are in that low cost airline Thai AirAsia will use PIA (Phuket International Airport) as a regional hub before the end of the year. Destinations in the works include Hong Kong, Bali, Ho Chi Minh City and domestically Chiang Mai.
Currently other hubs the airline utilizes are Singapore and Bangkok so Phuket will be added into the growth strategy, which is targeting huge growth in regional travel despite a slowdown globally on long haul business.
This news comes during a recent feeding frenzy of new international flights by Virgin Blue's V Australia and the return of Jetstar service from Singapore.
