Phuket to Penang destination reviews

4 customer reviews
flight Economy, AirAsia, Aug 16, 2019
Experience at Phuket airport was not the most fluent one. We had checked in in advance, and tried to print out the baggage tags by ourselves, but didn't succeed and needed to go in queue. There were too few check in officers, and even if we were at the airport in time, we needed to run to the gate., and there were still many people coming after us. The flight itself went well, and the staff on plane was ok, but we have seen better during our 3-month Asia trip (e.g. Vietjet and ThaiSmile).
