Phuket Airport Information

Phuket International Airport, the third busiest airport in Thailand after the two Bangkok airports, is located about 32 kilometres north of Phuket City and 36 kilometres north of Patong Beach. It's Phuket's only airport, handling both domestic and international flights as well as cargo.

The airport handles direct scheduled flights from Bangkok, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Australia as well as long haul international flights from a number of charter operators as well as scheduled airlines. There are also excellent air links direct from Phuket to many other cities in Thailand and Asia.

Arriving at Phuket Airport

Immigration procedures are usually fairly fast - although they can get backed up if a couple of wide-bodies arrive at the same time. If there is a delay, stay cool, calm and be patient; this is Asia and officials tend to move slowly. Customs is usually a breeze with very few, if any, incoming passengers being subjected to a check. However, absolutely DON'T think about bringing in illegal substances. Penalties are severe...

Departing from Phuket Airport

When you get into the departure hall, look for the check-in desk(s) with your flight details on a sign above it/them. Once you've checked in you are free to go through customs and immigration.
