Phuket International Airport
If you're looking for great fares on flights out of Phuket, ebookers can help you find them. You will depart from Phuket International Airport, located about ten miles north of Phuket. The airport is the second busiest in Thailand, second only to Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport. Airlines such as Virgin Australia, AirAsia, and Air Berlin operate flights through the airport to a variety of destinations, including Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam (seasonal), and Dubai.
Parking at Phuket Airport
The airport only has one parking lot, with both short- and long-term options. Located in front of the terminal, it's easy to reach by foot. Long-term parking spaces are better options for travellers intending to be away for a while. Because the parking lot has unusually good security, spaces tend to fill up very quickly, so you should reserve a spot in advance online. The daily rate is 200 baht.
Transportation to Phuket Airport
If you prefer not to drive, take a legitimate, metered taxi to the airport. The typical fare is about 500 baht, or approximately $16, and the ride will take roughly twenty-five minutes. You can make arrangements for a cab in advance at www.phukettaxi.com. An airport bus also runs between the airport and various destinations throughout the city. The fare is 85 baht, or about $2.80.
Dining at the Airport
The airport has a variety of on-site restaurants and cafes. If you're hungry when you arrive, you can choose from a variety of food and beverages, such as hot coffee and sweet pastries from Birdy Coffee and Bakery or one of the breakfast meals from Burger King or Dunkin' Donuts. If you prefer something more substantial, many travellers recommend the Thai Airways Restaurant for its great selection of Thai fare and friendly service. You'll know you got the best deal on your airline ticket when you book a flight from Phuket through ebookers.
