Flying into South East Asia has never been easier. The popularity of the region has brought new carriers into the market along with competitive prices.

Thorough internet research combining flexible travel dates and arrival points can yield a return air flight price to Thailand of under $500 from some parts of Europe. Also, it is often important to book early to get such deals.

Traveling to Thailand from Europe

Country carriers often fly directly to Bangkok for a return price of €600 - €800.

Many Middle Eastern carriers also fly to Bangkok with a stopover in the home country of the carrier. Such flights are typically cheaper than the direct flights by €100+.

From Bangkok it is necessary to either fly or bus down to Phang Nga, the province in which Koh Phra Thong is located. Further details on how to do this are provided in the local transport section.

Flights to Phuket

Alternatively, there are some direct return flights into Phuket which is located in the Phang Nga province. The direct carriers are Finnair and Air Berlin.

There are some charter planes from Europe flying directly into Bangkok during peak season and an increasing number of international airlines who will make their long haul flight into Bangkok and then hop down to Phuket.

The best way to get a handle on which companies fly into Phuket is to check out the arrivals schedule at the flightstats website.
