Phuket Airport Information

Phuket Transport | Overview on Phuket International Airport

Phuket International Airport is the second busiest airport in Thailand, it's also Phuket's only airport, handling all domestic and international flights from about 10 airlines providing more than 2,900,000 passengers, 27,000 flights and 12,000 tons of cargo per year.

Despite all this, it's still a rather modest airport, in fact if your only experience of international airports are of the likes of LAX, Heathrow, Hong Kong, Changi (Singapore) then by comparison Phuket Airport's amenities are very basic and surprisingly compact (ok it's small).

If you have a long time to spend at the airport there's not that much to do regarding entertainment and shopping is extremely limited, on the bright side you don't have to walk very far to get from check-in to your departure gate and it's almost impossible to get lost.
