As the tourist demographic matures and evolves, so does the airline mix landing in Phuket. Now Phuket’s direct international airlift is set to increase again with non-stop flights from Taipei, Taiwan on Eva Air.
The island’s airline traffic is already almost booked out for the next few months with Phuket International Airport officials asking airlines to add larger planes on their services to better use the available slots.
The new Eva Air services from Taipei will kick off next year on April 2, 2020, two weeks ahead of the Songkran holiday.
Three weekly flights will be the initial schedule – Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
The wider picture provides another international airline with Eva’s connections into North Asia and over to North America.
One route that continues to be missing from the Phuket airlift scene remains Japan, which remains a market of high value but inconvenient connections are present.
