Airport transfers from Phuket International Airport
Arriving at Phuket Airport : Landing in Phuket
Once you've landed and collected your luggage there will be a driver holding a sign with your name on it so you can quickly find your minibus or taxi. Your flight number is used so we can follow arrival times if they change. If you've booked a private minibus you'll be in your way to Rassada Pier within minutes, no hassle, no fuss just sit back and relax. Your holiday has officially started!
If your flight arrives in the evening we recommend booking an overnight stay on Phuket, wherever you stay we can arrange to pick you up the next morning to continue your journey to Phi Phi Island.
Phuket Airport : A short overview over Phuket's 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).
Rassada Pier : Phuket's main departure point for Phi Phi Island
It takes around an hour from when you leave the airport to get to Rassada Pier and again it's another place that can get very busy. If you've booked a ferry transfer you'll be given a coloured sticker to indicate to the staff which ferry you'll be on and you will be notified when it is time to board.
If you've opted for the private Speed Boat then there's no waiting, your luggage will be transferred to the boat and you'll be on your way.
