- The Coast
Phuket is the dream destination for hedonists, sun-seekers and island adventurers alike. Phuket International Airport offers travellers a quick and easy way to transit from the airport to the pristine beaches and relaxing massage parlours of one of the world's favourite holiday destinations.
The airport offers tourists a number of last-minute shopping opportunities, but it is generally designed to allow passengers more time on the beach and less time in queues in the terminal. The locals will greet visitors with broad smiles and offers of easy transport connections to the city as they begin their island adventure.
The airport is situated 20 miles (32km) from Phuket city.
Getting to the city
Many hotels offer transport for arriving guests, and several companies provide limousine and minibus services at the airport to transport passengers to their required destination.

Car rental companies represented at the airport include Avis, Budget, and Sixt.
A taxi stand is located outside of the airport. Metered taxis have limited space for luggage; if travellers have large luggage and there are more than two passengers, they should consider a limousine taxi, which operates on a fixed fare, or minibus transfer.
Transfer between terminals
It is possible to reach the terminals on foot.
Airport facilities include ATMs, shops (including duty-free shops), currency exchange services, an information counter, a sauna and spa, medical services, left luggage facilities, a restaurant, and a bar.
There is a range of convenient car parking options situated close to the terminals.
Flights to Phuket International Airport can be booked on AirAsia, Air China, Air Berlin, Asiana Airlines, Emirates, Firefly, Hong Kong Express Airways, JetStar Airways, and Qatar Airways.
Free WiFi is available in the terminal.
As Phuket isn't the typical business destination, the airport doesn't specifically cater for business travellers. A post office with fax and copying capabilities is available in the Departures area.
