On Thursday, 1 July, four different carriers will be touching down at Phuket International Airport on direct flights throughout the day: Etihad Airways from Abu Dhabi; Qatar Airways from Doha; EL AL Israel Airlines from Tel Aviv; and Singapore Airlines from Singapore.


The next day, Friday, 2 July, will see the arrival of a direct Emirates service from Dubai.

On Saturday, 3 July, there will be three Thai Airways International (THAI) direct flights arriving from Copenhagen, Paris, and Frankfurt.


These three THAI flights will then continue onto Bangkok, as will another two THAI flights scheduled for Sunday, 4 July, direct to Phuket from London and Zurich.

High-risk countries are not allowed entry at this stage and only visitors from 66 countries and regions are allowed to enter Phuket at this time.


The good news is Phuket Welcomes International Tourists Today and the bad news is our country is still clueless what to do for our tourism. Thanks for reading, take care and be safe.
