Phuket Airport welcomes Cathay Pacific’s revival of direct flights from Hong Kong


Recommended Posts


Cathay Pacific flights return to Phuket


The return of flights to Phuket keep racking up. But this one is particularly welcome. Hong-Kong based carrier Cathay Pacific, one of the worst affected airlines in the world over the past 3 years, has re-launched direct flights to Phuket.


The re-launched flight schedule arrived yesterday, with 118 passengers on board, according to a Phuket Express report. The airline tried to relaunch flights last year in November but had to postpone the re-introduction because of the latest surge of Covid at the time.


Hong Kong, along with China, recently eased Covid-19 travel restrictions and the introduction of the direct services back to Phuket is a reflection of this. Staff at Phuket Airport were on hand to welcome passengers arriving on CX771, presenting them with gifts and souvenirs to mark the occasion.


As the pandemic abates and global travel resumes, more airlines are introducing new direct services to Phuket or adding to their already existing flights.


Meanwhile, health officials in Thailand have stated that arrivals from China will not be subject to PCR tests but will be treated the same as all other passengers.


A number of countries have introduced testing requirements for travellers from China as the country is currently experiencing a surge in Covid-19 infections since abruptly dropping nearly all Covid restrictions recently.
