Bangkok Airways rolls out more flights to Phuket
We seem to be going through something of a rollercoaster in terms of flights to Phuket. From one week to the next, you never know who is going to cancel outright or else add new services for flights to Phuket. One-Two-Go and Nok Air have already shaken up the low-budget airline scene in Thailand, but now Bangkok Airways has entered the fray.
While Bangkok Airways is never going to offer the cheapest flights to Phuket, the addition of new flights to Phuket can only be a positive thing at this time. The new flights will run between Bangkok and Phuket twice each way on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
There is also a strong rumor going round that THAI Airways is about to roll out more flights from Bangkok to Phuket, so expect to read some sort of announcement about that in the next few days.
Tourism figures in Phuket haven’t dipped, despite the problem of budget flights to Phuket, but it’s unclear what will happen this coming high season.
