Phuket Airport clarifies connecting-flight boarding muddle

PHUKET:-- An official at Phuket International Airport (PIA) has confirmed that passengers who are booked on a domestic flight to Suvarnabhumi or Don Muang airports with a same-day connecting outbound international flight should check-in at the Phuket Airport’s new International Terminal.

 

All passengers with only a domestic flight should continue using the Domestic Terminal, the official said.

 

PIA representative Tithinun Pissdu explained, “As we all know, PIA now has two areas for passengers to check-in: the new International Terminal and the old Domestic Terminal.

 

“Since the opening of the new International Terminal we have seen many passengers, both Thais and foreigners, arriving at the wrong terminal because they believe they can check-in at either one as (they believe) both are open for all passengers to check-in in order reduce delays at the airport.

 

“To clarify, if you are booked on a domestic flight to Suvarnabhumi Airport with a same-day international flight leaving Suvarnabhumi, then you must check-in at the Phuket’s new International Terminal,” she said.

 

“Quite a few airlines, including THAI Airways (TG) and Bangkok Airways (check flight code), have connecting outbound international flights leaving from Suvarnabhumi that require passengers to check-in and clear Immigration and Customs at the new International Terminal here in Phuket,” she said.

 

People boarding AirAsia flights to Bangkok and have a connecting outbound international flight with the same booking number can check-in at either the new International Terminal or the Domestic Terminal, Ms Tithinun noted.

so theoretically can you leave Suvarnabhumi when you arrive at the domestic gates and walk out of the building without going through passport control there?

Of course you can. Now if you arrive there international but at a domestic gate you'll be guided to the international departures.

All in all nothing new.
