Phuket Airport Allowed To Open 15th June

Category: Tourism, Posted:03 Jun 2020 | 09:56 am

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) will allow domestic flights to and from Phuket International Airport according to the Provincial Communicable Disease Committee as of 15th June.

A quick check of airline’s schedules show the only three airlines – Thai AirAsia, NokAir and Thai Vietjet Air are selling seats, but these are all starting from 16th June onwards. Tickets generally are about THB1,500 one-way.

There remains no formal announcement if passengers to and from Bangkok would require quarantine on arrival.

Hotels in Phuket have received notice as of 1st June they are allowed to operate, but given there is presently no airlift, most say they are evaluating the situation before acting.

We have been reading a lot of news about Thai hotel owners who are selling properties at highly distressed prices. Given there is no actual data in the reports, let’s just say the mythical five-star beachfront hotels that are for sale at 50-60% off market value are best lumped into the mythical category.

There will undoubted be sales of hotel assets in time but this is an orderly process and will likely only see stressed owners come into play in Q3 and Q4 , but for now, no such mass scale hotel dumping is occurring in Phuket at this moment.
