Cheap flights to Phuket

As Thailand's largest island, Phuket has a pretty big reputation. This hedonistic playground is like Bangkok on water with all the accompanying crowds, chaos and wild nightlife. Its biggest drawcard is undoubtedly the beaches with palm trees, aquamarine seas and white sand for miles. Keen to dive in? Universal Traveller has cheap flights to Phuket with a range of awesome airlines. Plus, if you're a full-time student, teacher or under 26, you'll score even more savings with our exclusive Student Flights airfares.

Flights from Australia to Phuket disembark at Phuket International Airport (HKT), which also services the southern provinces of Thailand. Located around 32 kilometres from Phuket Town and Patong Beach, most hotels have private shuttles to transport you to from the airport to your accommodation, otherwise there are bus and taxi services available.

Non-stop flights from Australia to Phuket usually depart from Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne as well as other services from most capital cities.

About Phuket

One of the most popular things to do in Phuket is to do nothing. Choose one of the island's beautiful beaches such as party central Patong, laidback Karon or cruisy Kata, set up your beach towel and soak up the rays. Once you've got your dose of vitamin D, hop in a tuk-tuk to explore the temples, cabaret shows, markets and natural sights, then head back to a beach bar to watch the sunset.

For more inspiration and insider info, you'll find all the answers in our Phuket Travel Guide. And if you need assistance to sort your Phuket holiday package, call our Universal Traveller travel consultants for up-to-the-minute deals on flights, accommodation and tours.
