Phuket International Airport

One of the most convenient airports in the world.

This airport is very easy to get in and out if you are flying locally inside Thailand.  You can be off your plane and in your car and on the road in five to seven minutes tops.  And, at what other international airport can you park your car for about US$1.25 per day? 

The drive into Patong or Phuket Town will take about 30-35 minutes - if driven at a reasonable rate.  To Laguna Resorts and Bang Tao Beach/Surin area will be about 20 minutes.

Metered taxis are available straight out the arrivals doors and to the right - look for their kiosk.  Transport to the major cities will cost in the area of B500+ - the Laguna area, NE Phuket and Mai Khao areas will cost less.  Negotiated rate taxis (the people who will solicit you as you leave the arrivals area) will cost about 20% more - but sometimes have nicer and bigger cars.

Phuket International Airport ranks second in the country in terms of passenger and cargo volume.

Thanks to the fascinating tourist attractions including the world famous beaches in Phuket and the nearby provinces coupled with a complete range of tourist services, Phuket International Airport has welcomed millions of passengers each year. Most are tourists coming from countries all over the world.
