Phuket to Close Its Airspace from April 10

Following today's closure of Phuket's land and sea entry points, Phuket Governor Phakkhaphong Thawiphat announced that air transport to Phuket will also shut down effective from April, 10.

“Shutting down the air transport route requires seven days notification in advance according to Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT)’s regulations, therefore the shutdown order will come into effect on April 10 and will last until April 30 just like other transport routes,” he added.

If you need to get to or from Phuket any time soon, it pays to secure your air ticket as soon as possible as prices are expected to sky rocket and tickets will sell out quickly taking into account that several airlines including Lion Air and AirAsia have already stopped serving the island.

Phuket's only land transport channel which connects the island to the mainland, the Tha Chatchai Checkpoint, has been closed today for all transport except vehicles that carry necessary supplies.

The island's marine transport channels both international and inter-provincial, have also been closed today for all ships except those carrying necessary supplies and vehicles used in government or medical affairs.
