The runway of Samui Airport (USM) is 2100 meters long.


A long range airplane, like B777 would need from 2,440 meter to 3,380 meter take off run at sea-level with MTOW (Max Take Off Weight). A B787 from 2,600 meter and an Airbus 330 needs 2,770 meter.


I can imagine that the length of the runway – and perhaps also weight – would limit a number of long-range destinations for direct charter flights.

Correct. Suitable only for narrow body aircraft, regional destinations. The charming terminal may lack facilities, ramp space and ground equipment to handle much else.

Make it quarantine Island for Chinese tourists, and westerners go to Phuket or vice versa ...

Perhaps people from Samui could visit Phuket and people from Phuket could visit Samui. This would be a Samui Phuket only bubble. Have to send my great idea to our minister for tourism. No need for for

I can just see Bangkok Airways allowing that one. Not.
