Edelweiss is currently offering cheap tickets to Phuket in Thailand – partly in cooperation with its Star Alliance partners. A round-trip from Amsterdam starts at only 365€ – including 23 kg checked baggage and a warm meal on board.
There are several options for you to get to Phuket. For instance, there is a very convenient direct flight from Zurich. But this route will unfortunately not be available until November 2019. Alternatively, you can first fly to Bangkok via one of the Lufthansa Group’s hubs, e.g., Zurich, Frankfurt or Vienna. The long-haul routes will be operated by Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines or Thai Airways. From Bangkok, your trip will continue with Thai Airways to Phuket.
Thai Airways – in contrast to Swiss & Austrian – configure their Boeing 777 with only nine seats per row in Economy Class. That is to say that for the same price, the seating comfort should be a bit higher.
Search & Book
The Fare Rules do not specify a booking or a travel period. Google Flights (instructions) provides travel dates between May and June 2019 and between September 2019 and April 2020. The minimum stay is 3 days. You can book at the best price using Skyscanner or our Travel Dealz flight search.
Information & Tips for Phuket
Phuket is a southern province and also the largest island of Thailand in Southeast Asian. While Bangkok is more of a tourist destination, Phuket offers a lot of recreational options on the beach and is located in the Indian Ocean rather than the Gulf of Thailand.
Although Phuket is not always as easy to reach as Bangkok and it will often take an additional layover to get there, you can combine your beach holiday with a city trip to Bangkok. You can first book your flights to Bangkok and then separate (cheap!) flights from Bangkok to Phuket if you really can’t find a good deal from Europe.
Best Time to Visit
The best time to travel is from November to February. During this time it is dry and comparatively cool but of course still ideal for a beach holiday. The rainy season runs from mid-May to October.
From/to the airport
From the airport to different cities/resorts on the island, it is best to take a taxi (or Uber). Bus connections are cheaper but also much slower.
