Phuket Airport Passenger Arrival Drop

Category: Tourism, Posted:28 Apr 2019 | 09:28 am

To date, 2019 is shaping up to be a slightly volatile year for tourism to the island.

Passenger arrivals at Phuket International Airport rose 1% year-on-year in January, yet took a step back in February with a substantial 6% decline.

Registering the sharpest slowdown has been the Mainland Chinese segment.

Thailand’s government has extended a visa free incentive and is also implementing measures to stimulate domestic tourism.

One notable change that may stimulate some demand has been the recent weakening of the Thai baht.
