Phuket Tourists Stranded As Flights Cancelled

The vast majority of tourists who have entered the Phuket Sandbox have arrived and will leave by a direct international flight to the island.

Some however had planned on taking an internal flight elsewhere in Thailand once their initial 14 days were completed. Others were heading to Bangkok for onward flights elsewhere. Many others were Thai’s who were entering the Sandbox prior to returning to their homes elsewhere in the country.

The heightening in restrictions in Thailand however has resulted in domestic flights in Thailand being cancelled, throwing travellers plans into turmoil and unable to make it to Bangkok for their onward flight.

The Bangkok Post is now reporting that a temporary bus service is now being put on to enable people to get to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport.

The service will run on three days per week, Monday, Thursday and Saturday, until the current restrictions are due to end on 16th August.

The Sandbox Express Bus service must be pre-booked through Safety and Health Administration (SHA) Plus hotels.

The bus service, costing 1,500 baht per person, leaves Phuket at 5am before arriving at Suvarnabhumi airport at 9pm.
