Phuket insider flight tips

  • Many flights departing from Australia and landing in Phuket will have a layover in Asia- Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Bangkok are most common. The cheapest flights are those with long layover times. You can make the most of your layover by booking a tour with pick-up and drop-off from the airport itself. Travel agents can also help you book tours and accommodation to ensure you make your next flight.
  • AirAsia and Jetstar offer the lowest fares and 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 baggage is included, such as Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines or China Southern.

How to get from the airport

The easiest transport option is to ask your hotel or resort to arrange your transfer for you as this is sometimes included in your hotel rate. Otherwise, your best option is to head to 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 ensure you agree on a price before getting into the vehicle.

The reliable "Phuket Airport Bus" runs roughly between 7am-8pm to schedule and you'll recognise 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.
