Arriving at Phuket International Airport in Thailand (HKT). If this is your first visit to Phuket Airport International Passenger Terminal you should find this video helpful for getting an idea of the airport procedures when you arrive at Phuket International Airport in Thailand.

This Phuket International Airport Arrival footage is filmed from the disembarkation of our flight (a Thai Airways Flight from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport), through the walk to the arrivals area where we book and pay for a private taxi to drive us to Patong Beach one of the main beach areas in Phuket.

Our walk begins where we have just disembarked our plane and are walking through Phuket Airport´s new International Passenger Terminal towards the International Baggage Claim Area and Customs. WE do not have to pass through Immigration (Passport Control) as we have already done that in Bangkok. We arrived at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport with a Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt and therefore we passed through Immigration before boarding our next flight to Phuket. We were given a sticker to wear which informed staff at Phuket International Airport that even though we were arriving on a Domestic Flight from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport our luggage had not yet passed Customs and therefore it had to be picked up in the International Baggage Arrivals Area. Our arrival walk through the Phuket Airport Terminal eventually brings us to the International Baggage Claim Area. From there we pass through Customs and then make our way to one of the transportation desks offering taxi and minibus services to some of the many tourist destinations on Phuket Island, places like Patong Beach, Kata Beach and Karon Beach. The video ends as we walk out of the new Phuket Airport Arrivals area and make our way to the taxi which will drive us to Patong Beach.

We found the new Phuket Airport International Terminal to be very modern and easy to navigate. The Phuket International Arrivals Hall was also easy to find your way out of.

Wiki Writes about Phuket Airport, “Phuket International Airport (Thai: ท่าอากาศยานภูเก็ต) is an international airport serving the Phuket Province of Thailand. It is in the north of Phuket Island, 32 kilometres 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 has two terminals: Terminal 1 is used for international flights, and Terminal 2 for domestic flights. Terminal X for charter flights opened in February 2014… The capacity of the new international terminal is five million passengers per year…”

Wiki writes about Phuket, “Phuket (Thai: ภูเก็ต, [pʰūː.kèt] is one of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand. It consists of the island of Phuket, the country’s largest island, and another 32 smaller islands off its coast. It lies off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. Phuket Island is connected by the Sarasin Bridge to Phang Nga Province to the north. The next nearest province is Krabi, to the east across Phang Nga Bay… Phuket Province has an area of 576 square kilometres (222 sq mi), somewhat less than that of Singapore, and is the second-smallest province of Thailand.
