Phuket Air In London?

Fri Jul 09, 2004 7:59 pm

Hi,

I just realize that Phuket Air has their schedule from BKK-London(don't know which), is that true? Do you see them? How are they doing over in England? I just wander because they are so many Thai airliners that want to go to London but many didn't make it, so if somebosy can clarify this I'll be very happy.

Thankx

Hi ThaiLover,

Phuket Airlines fly to Gatwick I think, found the following picture by conducting a search.

You can even buy their tickets through lastminute.com. THowever, the prices don't seem to be exactly competitive: LON-BKK 425 GBP with Phuket, 475 with Emirates (both incl. taxes)

L410, over that distance you can't make many savings. 10% off the EK price is fairly good I think, although to be fair, I'd pay the extra £50 and go EK!

As an example, the UK-Florida charter flights are only marginally less than scheduled flights - same principle.

L410Turbolet,
Dont buy Phuket air tickets online. It would be cheaper to buy through your travel agent.

PIA,
Thanks for the info! Flying with Phuket means for me getting to London first. I'm currently booked with AeroSvit PRG-KBP-BKK for something like 315 GBP icl. taxes.
There are rumours about Phuket flying to PRG as well - being one of the only two scheduled 747s flying to PRG (KE on ICN-PRG is the other one). It's still only rumors...
