Thai Airways to launch Europe-Phuket services from July 2

MONDAY, June 07, 2021

Thai Airways International (THAI) will fly foreign tourists from European cities to Phuket from July 2, when the island reopens to international travellers.

The direct flights will operate from Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Paris, London and Zurich until September.

The service will launch in Copenhagen, Frankfurt and Paris on July 2 before extending to London and Zurich.

Nond Kalinta, THAI’s commercial executive president, said the service would support the government's policy to drive the economy under the Phuket Sandbox model, a pilot scheme for quarantine-free entry of foreign travellers. The scheme is scheduled to launch in other Thai tourist destinations in October.

Meanwhile, Thai Smile Airways will lay on four flights per week between Phuket and Hong Kong starting July 2. The service will run every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
