Hooray. Phuket Airport Is Open
Phuket International Airport has been allowed to open and is operational today.
Only regularly scheduled domestic flights are currently being allowed and non-scheduled international repatriation flights.
The first airline servicing the Phuket Bangkok route is Thai Vietjet who already have a once a day service and add a second daily flight on the 16th.
Nok Air will commence flights on the 16th and Thai AirAsia on the 18th, while Thai Lion is scheduled for the 19th.
Missing in action is Bangkok Airways and Thai Smile who currently have no flights listed and of course Thai Airways International. The latter is sidelined at the moment with no clarity if and when they will service Phuket anytime soon.
