Jet auction. Starting bid only 30 million Baht.

Need a new way to get around? Need to avoid Phuket’s traffic? Get your own plane!

And not just any plane but an Airbus A310.

Here’s what Wikipedia says about this fine, slightly used, jet aeroplane…

“The Airbus A310 is a medium- to long-range twin-engined wide-body jet airliner that was developed and manufactured by Airbus. Entering service in 1983, it was the second aircraft to enter production by Airbus, then a consortium of European aerospace manufacturers. The A310 is a smaller derivative of the Airbus A300, the first twin-engined widebody airliner”.

You’ll be able to travel in style, along with 269 others (plus your very own captain and crew). The plane was seized by Legal Execution Department as instructed by the Civil Court from Asia Connect Airlines in January, 2016 after it flew back to Thailand from Incheon airport in South Korea.

The bidding starts at 30 million baht.

The auction rounds start on September 6 with six auction rounds allowed. But even if you win the bidding you’ll need to pay the parking fees for the lonely jet. It’s been sitting at Don Mueang Airport in Bangkok for the past 20 months at a fee of 10,700 baht per day. That adds up to another 4 million or so on top of your 30 million, or whatever you end up paying for the plane.

You will also need to find a new parking space for the plane once you buy it.
