Directions for your Phuket Airport transfer
Phuket International Airport (HKT) is the second largest airport in Thailand, offering both domestic and international flights. The distance from Phuket Airport to Phuket Town is approximately 33 km and the journey won’t take more than 45 minutes, under normal traffic conditions.
As you set off in your private Phuket Airport taxi, your driver will take the 402 highway. “Airport to Phuket”, and head south. The 402 highway will eventually reach the town of Phuket after a 30 km drive. From there, your driver will turn right and use local roads to drop you off at your hotel or accommodation.
If you’re travelling elsewhere, Welcome frequently operates several popular routes from Phuket Airport including Patong, Khao Lak, and Rassada Pier.
Phuket Airport taxi prices
Taxis at Phuket Airport calculate fares using a taximeter, based on the distance travelled. There is a taxi counter at the airport displaying taxi rates, where you can get a ticket for a metered taxi. However, even with the ticket, some drivers will attempt to give you a fixed rate. In this case, try to negotiate a lower price.
Nevertheless, the average taxi price from Phuket Airport to Patong or Phuket Town is around €20 (THB 750). Although taxis are readily available at the airport, we recommend booking your transfer from Phuket Airport in advance to ensure competitive prices and reliable service.
