On hand to lead the welcoming committee was Phuket Vice Governor Piyapong Choowong. Joining him were Monchai Tanode, General Manager of Phuket Airport; Thitiporn Maneenet, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Director for Europe, Africa and the Middle East; and Nanthasiri Ronnasiri, Director of the TAT Phuket Office.

 

Passengers boarded the Finnair flight, AY153 on the ARN - HKT route, at Arlanda Airport in Stockholm, and touched down in Phuket at 9:12am, reported the Airports of Thailand (AoT) Phuket office.

In total 135 foreign tourists were brought to Phuket under the Phuket Sandbox scheme, and were cleared through Gate 11, 

The flight today marked the resumption of the Stockholm ‒ Phuket service after a hiatus of nearly two years, noted Vice Governor Piyapong.

 

 

The next flight whenever that will be will be the real test, currently 135 people tavelled from a whole country , I would have been more opptimistic if another flight was arriving tomorrow and it was full otherwise I don't see anything to be writting home about - when is the next flight and how many passengers ?

Definition (British) of word TAT :”…….items which you think are cheap and of bad quality”.

Reminds me when SAG (Saudi Arabian Govt.) was changed to GSA !

Cant believe this unfortunate acronym has never been pointed out here ! 

 

OP Headline could be better. Appears as if only one Tourist on that flight ! which is the only reason I opened OP, which otherwise is rather like an article title of “ Water Found to be Wet”……

from the Monty Python college of “stating the bleeding obvious”.

Meanwhile in Roi Et. Nok to Pichai: "The Swedish guy somehow managed to get back to Thailand, quickly move back to your own house".

I know tourist numbers are low but next time maybe put an 's' on 'tourist' in the headline.  Reading the headline, I thought the plane arrived with just 1 passenger.

  • theoldgit changed the title to Finnair brings Swedish tourists to Phuket

The plane looks like a A319-100 or perhaps a A320-200 which has a 'max passenger capacity of 124-156 and 150-186 respectively. 135 tourists who flew in seem a near full load of passengers contrary to the moaners assertions. Moreover some safe seating distancing may be in the seating protocol.

The aircraft is a 787 Dreamliner.

How do you think an Airbus A319 could make it nonstop from Stockholm to Phuket ??

Or it's more likely an Airbus A350~900
