Phuket Airport to Rawai bus service set for February launch

The operator of a new Phuket Airport bus service says it should be up and running by the end of the month. A director of the Phuket City Development Company said trial runs had been pencilled in for the coming week and a deadline of 28 February had been set for the live launch of the service.

Speaking to news sources on the southern Thai island, Watchara Jaruariyanon said the buses would stop at west coast beach towns including Surin and Kata en route to the terminus at Rawai. He added that the company would be utilising a fleet of 10 Mercedes-Benz buses with seating for 25 passengers.

The buses themselves are designed for airport routes and have extra luggage space, wheelchair ramps and modern CCTV. The company aims to run buses at 30 to 35 minute intervals. 12GO ASIA says the bus service will offer an extra choice for passengers arriving at and departing from Phuket Airport.

There is already a bus route to the bus station in Phuket Town. Other choices are limousine and hotel shuttle transfers, taxi and car hire. Ten car hire suppliers, such as Hertz and Europcar, are represented at Phuket Airport.
