Good news for Phuket travellers. Even more direct domestic & international flight from Phuket from Air Asia. Great, air travel is getter cheaper and more convenient.

Phuket - Udon Thani flights start Monday

PHUKET CITY: Thai AirAsia will launch a new direct flight service connecting Phuket and the Isarn town of Udon Thani on Monday, December 21.

The new service, with a 1 hour and 40 minute flight time, will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Thai AirAsia CEO Tassapol Bijleveld said “Udon Thani is in the central part of the Northeast region. With its location, it is very easy to travel to Laos through neighboring Nong Khai province to view the unique culture of our northern neighbor.â€

As Thai AirAsia’s designated second air hub, after Suvarnabumi Airport in Bangkok, AirAsia’s Phuket operation already offers direct flights daily to Chiang Mai.

The new flights are part of a regional expansion that includes daily direct flights from Phuket to Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City and Jakarta, as well as thrice-weekly flights to Medan.

And here is another new airline service from Phuket.

Phuket's Happy Air launches Langkawi flights

PHUKET CITY: New regional airline Happy Air on Saturday launched its three-times-weekly flights from Phuket to Malaysia’s duty-free island of Langkawi.

The service, which takes 40 minutes, is aboard a Swedish-built SAAB 340A aircraft.

The 34-seat, twin-engine turboprop plane will be manned by two cabin crew per flight.

The Happy Air marketing team told a press conference at the The Metropole Hotel on Saturday that the airfare is a reasonable 4,000 baht.

The service is expected to prove popular among Phuket's large foreign community as 'visa runs' out of Thailand can be made in a single day with no hotel expense.

Flights depart from Phuket on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 9am, arriving at Langkawi Island at 11am local time. The return flight departs from Langkawi an hour later.

Happy Air’s 2,500-baht flights from Phuket to Haad Yai have been a success, with passenger numbers increasing on a daily basis.

The flight is already popular with members of the civil service and Happy Air expects to see more foreign tourists taking advantage of the service soon.

Happy Air also plans to begin service between Haad Yai and Malaysia’s Subang Airport in the near future, the press conference was told.
