PHUKET AIRPORT

Phuket International Airport is an international airport serving the Phuket Province of Thailand. It is in the north of Phuket Island, 32 kilometres (20 mi) from the centre of Phuket City. The airport plays a major role in Thailand’s tourism industry, as Phuket Island is a popular resort destination.

It is the third-busiest airport in Thailand in terms of passengers, after Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang International Airport in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region. The airport set a record 15.1 million arrivals and departures in 2016, up 17.8 percent from 2015.

Terminals
The airport has three terminals: Terminal 2 is used for international flights, and Terminal 3 for domestic flights. Terminal X for charter flights opened in February 2014.

Phuket Airport underwent a 5.14-billion-baht expansion and renovation, with the work completed in 2016. The capacity of the new international terminal is five million passengers per year. The expansion increased airport capacity to 12.5 million passengers a year from its previous capacity of 6.5 million. A rail link from an alternate airport, Krabi, was suggested in 2012, as Phuket is congested with little room to expand.
