Phuket Airport (HKT) is the main port of arrival for most visitors to the island. It's the second busiest airport in Thailand by passenger and freight volume. Over 14 million passengers from 37 destinations pass through its two terminals every year. Nearly 100,000 flights from 46 airlines touch down on its single runway annually.
The airport’s location is one of the most remarkable in Thailand, being directly behind Mai Khao Beach. During high season, approaching aircraft pass right over the beach just before they land. When they take off, northbound flights pass over the beautiful Phang Nga Bay, giving a unique view of the stunning landscape.
