New Phuket airport still awaiting arrival
Anyway arriving at the gateway to Patong, or the Phuket International Airport, as it is more commonly known, in recent months will have noticed the brand new sparkly building next door. The NEW terminal of Phuket International Airport has been due for completion for some time, with the completion date constantly put back.
The new terminal will accommodate an extra 12.5 million passengers. Rumours that they will all be Chinese have neither been confirmed or denied.
The latest announcement suggested a completion date at the end of September. Should be ready just in time for Christmas then.
