Bangkok Airways who have a controlling stake in the airport continue to dominate the traffic into the island, though Thai Airways does have limited domestic services. The airlines international routes to the island is limited, highlighted by Hong Kong and Singapore service; while Malaysia's Firefly and Berjaya Air both fly from Thailand's southern neighbor.
