Just flew with Air Asia 1100 Bht one way (booked 3 months in advance) and 1650 Bht one way booked 4 days before traveling. Good airline and no problems just book it yourself on the internet.

Just booked Air Asia PHKT to BKK Feb. 5 2008 - 1537bht with all taxes, gas surcharge, priority boarding upgrade, and 1 checked bag ($45). Flight leaves 9:05 arrives 10:25, then I gotta get a cab to Pattaya.

Did you mean Feb 5th 2009??

 

I'm thinking of booking a flight from BKK to PHKT with Air Asia in Feb but was wondering if it would be best to book after landing at BKK just in case of any flight delays.

Bangkok Air run a service out of Pattaya's airport Uo Tapo.

Good service however expensive at over 6,000 baht return.

The flight times are good as well.

I like the convenience of leaving my car at the airport and it is only 30 drive home as apposed to 1 1/2 hrs from BKK.

IMO Air Asia is unbeatable value. I have used them many times, best value for money from Phuket to BKK. Around $40 one way.

thanks for all the info guys, but I have couple of questions,

 

is it a small plane? I hear the wind can be a major problem when

flying in Phuket and can be scary as hell?...but how about flying out too?

 

I also heard that a plane crashed in 2007 into Phuket and killed everyone...was there any

BM on that flight?

In Nov. 2007 I flew several times on inlandflights. (BKK-ChangMai;BKK-Phuket)

 

You can buy the ticket at the airport. I flew 4 times and I never wait more than 3 hours mostly under 2 hours

You can buy the ticket also in most of the travelagencys.

If you stay in Bankok you have to go to the old airport (Donmeang)

 

There are some airportcarriers for inlandflights:

 

Thai Air: very expensive

 

Budget Carriers

Nok Air:

Budget flight, one way 1850 bath, I think the have 4 flights a day, they allow a 15kg baggage and a 7kg onboard baggage,

the jet is ok, you have to pay for drinks and sandwiches

 

One-Two-Go:

also budget flight, same price as nok air,i think also 4 flights a day, they allow 2 pieces of baggage with total 27kg, the jet is ok and you get one soft-drink for free

last time they had an offer, if you buy a ticket at the airport and and the plane starts inbetween 2 hours, you will get the flight 150 baths cheaper

 

I prefer one-two-go, but nok air is also ok.

 

Sorry, my english is not so good

Plane size depends on which airline you use. I would only use Thai (biggest plane travelling to Phuket, also fastest and also most expensive) or Air Asia (does great deals on fares and planes are decent enough, nothing to worry about). Both of these leave from Suvarnabhumi and not necessarily Don Muaeng.

The likes of Nok Air and One-Two-Go (the airline which tragically crashed) are generally considered inferior, but are hardly anything you would stay WELL clear of.

Scary as hell? Couldn't care a less what might happen, it is all worth it once you land. PLEASE NOTE - I don't think the landing / ascent are considered bad by anyone I have talked to (somebody might contest this?).

Have fun!

It was a One2Go plane, not everyone was killed, and the weather was unbelievably bad at the time.

 

I was on the next One2Go flight out of Phuket........needless to say it was very nearly empty!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
