We are at Phuket International Airport (HKT) on the island of Phuket in Thailand. This video documents an international departure flight from Phuket Airport. The video footage starts where Traveller Channels, Maxi and Maro have just arrived at the Airport at Terminal 1 (Departure Terminal) with a taxi. Before entering the airport all passengers have to pass through a security check where all the passengers luggage’s are scanned. After passing through this security control we realize that the check in counter for our flight is located at Terminal 2 which lies next to this terminal a short indoor walk away. We then begin the walk to Terminal 2 where we discover that the check-in area is located downstairs which means that we must take the elevator down as our luggage is too heavy to carry down on the stairs. Once we get down to the check-in area we quickly find our check-in desk for our Thomas Cook flight to Copenhagen. Once we have checked in for our flight we once again must make our way back upstairs in the same direction, as this is where we will pass one more security control and immigration. After passing security control and immigration (which we are not allowed to film) we give the viewer a tour of the Phuket Airport International Departure lounge. This lounge is not very big by an “International Departure Lounge” standard but still offers passengers a selection of restaurants, Business Class Lounges, cafe´s, kiosks, fast food restaurants, souvenir shops, duty free shops and even a massage salon! Viewers are given a tour of this departure lounge where we aim to try to show the prices of food and drinks (snacks) at this airport. We found, like all other airports around the world, that prices where generally very overpriced compared to the local high street prices in Thailand! Once we have showed the viewer around the departure lounge, we make our way downstairs to our Gate 66. Embarkation for our flight will take place from the tarmac which means that we will be driving to our aircraft by bus…

Wiki writes about Phuket International Airport (HKT), “Phuket International Airport (Thai: ท่าอากาศยานภูเก็ต) (IATA: HKT, ICAO: VTSP) is an airport serving Phuket Province of Thailand. It is in the north of Phuket Island, 32 kilometres (20 mi) 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 area…”

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 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. It formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber, and enjoys a rich and colorful history. The island was on one of the major trading routes between India and China, and was frequently mentioned in foreign ship logs of Portuguese, French, Dutch, and English traders. The region now derives much of its income from tourism…”

This footage is filmed inside and outside of Phuket International Airport in Thailand with a Panasonic HC-VX870 4K video camcorder. Panasonic writes about the HC-VX870, “Capture your vision in 4K video – Elevate your creativity with 4K video.

Thanks for the great video! Me and my wife are flying to Phuket in September 2016, hopefully the airport upgrades are finished by then (if they aren't already!). Airport prices are typical, if I think of what they charge in South African airports, it's much the same!
