Phuket Airport Calls For Understanding During Renovations
Airports of Thailand Phuket apologised to travellers yesterday in a press release for the recent delays as the airport’s major renovations continue. “We apologise for any inconvenience during the renovations. We are working to improve the building to accommodate the increasing number of passengers at the airport for the high season,” the press release stated.
“We have officers posted around the airport to assist travellers and direct them to the correct areas and we have signs posted throughout the terminal. We have also added extra seating in a new waiting area to make it more convenient for passengers needing to wait for their flights. We recommend passengers arrive at least two hours before they need to check in for their flights,” the notice advised. “We are also taking steps to alleviate traffic jams at the entrance to the terminal,” the notice added.
Airports of Thailand Phuket have further advised people arriving at the airport who need to access the new International Terminal to park near Door 5 on Level 1 or Door 3 on Level 3 of the five story car park. People looking to drop off passengers at the Domestic Terminal, however, were told that vehicles could circle through the drop off zone every 15 minutes. The repeated calls for understanding follow a slew of complaints from people using the airport since the renovations began last Tuesday.
