Phuket Airport Transfers

For those of you that want to explore the Phuket Proviince of Thailand and want to experience one of the most impressive landings the country has to offer, then the International Phuket Airport is the one for you! The airport is based directly behind Mai Khao Beach, with the runway just a dozen of metres away which makes for quite an incredible landing experience! There are two terminals, Terminal 1 which is for international flights and Terminal 2 for domestic flights. Phuket airport is approximately 32 kilometres away from the centre of Phuket City and there are plenty of different ways to get from the Airport to your final destination!

Airport Bus:

  • This is by far the cheapest way to get into town and all of these buses are air-conditioned.
  • You can get the bus from the Frist Floor outside the Arrivals Hall on the left. There are 8 stops before the final destination that is the Phukey Bus Station in the centre.
  • The buses run from 8:00 – 20:30 running roughly every hour. It takes approximately 1 hour 20 minutes to do the full journey. However it is advisable to have a plan B in mind as this service can often be infrequent.

 

  • Taxi:

 

  • Taxis are quicker than getting the bus but can cost more. Your driver will also be able to take you straight to your hotel/hostel from the arrivals terminal with your travel time being around 30 minutes.
  • A metered taxi stand is located outside of the Phuket airport main terminal building of the far right as you exit the terminal.

 

  • Private Limousine:

 

  • If you fancy splashing out and travelling style, then you can hire a private limousine that will pick you up from the Arrivals terminal.
  • It would be advisable to get a quote and agree on the fixed amount before embarking on your journey so as not to have any surprise costs handed to you at the end of your journey.
  • There is a service desk next to the Taxi stand where you will be able to get your Limousine transfer.
