Phuket insider flight tips

  • Jetstar flies direct to Phuket from Sydney and Melbourne on most days with a flight time of under nine hours. These flights let you maximise your holiday time and are often among the cheaper options if you can be flexible with your dates
  • Those flying from Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide or elsewhere will have a layover in Asia – Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Bangkok are most common, depending on the airline. Consider stopping for a visit as the cheapest flights are those with long layover times; you may even be able to book a tour with pick-up and drop-off at the airport itself. Travel agents can also help if you want to stop over for the night or longer.
  • Bear in mind that while AirAsia and Jetstar offer the lowest fares, you’ll have to pay extra for any luggage you want to check in. If travelling with more than a few kilos it may be worth paying the extra to fly with one of the full-service airlines where this is included, such as Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines or China Southern. Check the airline’s website for specific route restrictions

How to get from the airport

Visitors to Phuket, including the resorts of Patong, Karon, Krabi and Khao Lak, have a few options for getting there from the airport. Upon arrival beware of touts who may try to rip you off or take you on a detour via their family’s and friends’ businesses. The easiest option is to ask your hotel to arrange your transfer for you and this is sometimes included in your hotel rate. Otherwise the safest bet is to ignore any touts offering you a cheap price and head for a counter to book a transfer, or go straight to the metered taxi rank once outside the arrivals terminal. Make sure the driver knows exactly where you are going – have your hotel name written down where possible – and agree on a price before getting in.

The reliable “Phuket Airport Bus” runs roughly 7am–8pm to a schedule and you’ll recognise it by the orange logo and staff uniforms – turn left when you step outside the Arrivals terminal. Travel time to Phuket Town is up to 1 hour 30 minutes. From Phuket Town you can take bus transfers from Bus Terminal 2 on Tambon Ratsada to areas such as Patong, Karon, Krabi and Khao Lak.
