Located about 16 miles northwest of Phuket City, Phuket International Airport primarily serves Phuket Province. With its annual passenger arrival and departure number estimated to be 9 million, Phuket Airport remains Thailands 2nd busiest aviation hub, closely following Suvarnabhumi International Airport, located in Bangkok Metropolitan Area. While the airport is served by number of leading passenger airlines, Asia Pacific and European regions account for maximum number of tourist arrivals.
As Phuket Island is a leading seaside destination, the airport plays an important role in strengthening the regional tourism industry. Triggered by unprecedented growth in tourism, the airport is undergoing a large scale renovation project. The expansion plan is set to pave way for an enlarged international terminal, multilevel car parking, cargo hub, and an array of other passenger amenities.
Hiring a car right from the airport not just saves your time, but also gives you an opportunity to start with your road trip in to the land of gala events, dense rainforests, and plenty of worth seeing places. As the airport is networked with number of land routes, traveling to any of the nearbycities remains a favorite choice for tourists.
Take Route 402 to drive straight into the Phuket City center, which is just 20 miles away from the airport. Travelers willing to make their fist halt at Surat Thani, which is at a distance of 132 miles, should opt for Route 44. Nakhon Si Thammarat, located about 192 miles away from the airport, is conveniently approachable via Route 41.
