Qantas offers special deal to Phuket

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Australian national carrier Qantas and the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) have launched a joint “Rediscover Thailand” marketing campaign, aimed at helping Phuket recover from the December 26 tsunami.

“Rediscover Thailand” will offer tourists a range of specially-priced packages, including one to Phuket including eight nights’ accommodation and airport transfers from A$1,089 (32,760 baht) per person, excluding taxes.

The first of six non-stop charter flights – one a week – is due to leave Sydney for Phuket on June 20, and similar packages are planned for September and October.

Simon Bernardi, Head of Qantas Holidays, urged Australian travelers to get behind the post-tsunami tourism recovery drive.

Describing Thailand as “dear to our hearts”, Mr Bernardi said, “[This campaign] will help the country’s vital tourism industry get back on its feet.

“We expect Thailand to regain – and regain quickly – its popularity with Australian holidaymakers.”
