Transport on the island

To and From the airport

Airport transfers are relatively simple, the airport is at the far north of the island, some 30 kilometres from Phuket Town and even further from most of the popular beaches like Patong and Karon. It is best to use one of the two official transport companies with booths right inside the arrival lounge, you can’t miss them. Prices are fixed: 600 THB for an Airport Limousine or 150 THB per person for a minibus to get to the major beaches at the south or west of the island. Metered taxis are also available and are private taxis but we suggest you avoid these since problems have been known to occure.

The Airport Bus is a cheaper alternative as long as you are not in a rush. Ask at the airport for their current departure schedules and pricing.

Car rental is available and companies, such as Budget and National, have offices located in the airport.

Airline in & out of Phuket

A multitude of airlines now run scheduled fights to and from Phuket, and during high season chartered flights are also available. Budget airlines such as Air Asia, Nok Air and one-2-Go Air all run convenient and economical flights to other provinces throughout Thailand.
