Phuket International Airport is open from today. This island’s airport, closed from the start of April, re-opened just after midnight. Not that there are many scheduled flights today.

It looks like the announcement from the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand caught the airlines by surprise as well but the airlines may add flights quickly to take advantage of the earlier opening of the island’s airport. It had been widely tipped to re-open next Tuesday.

The first flight bookings are available from today (at least with VietJet), but AirAsia starts their flights on Tuesday, according to the websites of the airlines that have announced their return to the domestic skies. Nok Air and Thai Lion Air have flights from the middle of next week but they may add some earlier flights too.

    As soon as they allow departures there will be a mass exit of remaining tourists trapped there.
    There will be more Thai businesses closing due to even more lack of customers.
    However there is still all night fishing for the unemployed Thais, where they can while away the hours talking about the good old days earning B2500 a day as tuc tuc drivers.
