Book flights to Phuket

Blessed with world-famous beaches, boundless natural beauty and lively entertainment, Thailand’s biggest island ticks all the boxes for a tropical escape. In Phuket you can do it all – relax in blissful spas and beach hop by day and live it up at the island’s hip beach clubs by night.

Fly from London to Phuket with British Airways and our partner airline Qatar to experience island life for yourself. Whether you want to party the night away in Patong or escape to the calm, idyllic beaches of the south, Phuket strikes the perfect balance for fun and sun-seeking travellers. Explore traditional fishing villages, hike around Khao Phra Theao National Park or visit the many ancient temples dotted across the island. You can’t visit Phuket without peeking beneath the water’s surface – snorkel, dive or simply swim alongside the aquatic locals off the coast of nearby Coral Island. Then, take it easy on Banana Beach for an off-the-beaten-track afternoon of relaxation. See it all for yourself on a holiday to Phuket.

Phuket flight FAQs

How long is a flight to Phuket?

Flights from London to Phuket take around 14 hours in total, connecting in Doha with our partner airline Qatar.

What’s the cheapest month to fly to Phuket?

Phuket’s tropical climate means you’ll enjoy warm weather and sunshine all year round, although it’s slightly drier – and more popular – in winter. Travel between April and November for the best value flights to Doha, where you can connect to Phuket. To find the cheapest flights to Doha where you can connect to Phuket, use our low fare finder.

Is Phuket cheap to visit?

In Phuket you can eat, drink and travel around on a budget – just ask the backpackers who flock to the island for its great value food, hostels and nightlife. The island has also become a haven for those looking for luxury, with five-star resorts and boutique hotels lining the beaches of Layan, Bang Tao and Surin. However, most budgets will go far in Phuket Town, Patong and Kata, where the lively beach bars and restaurants all compete for the tourists’ baht.

Is it easy to get around Phuket?

Once you land in Phuket, there are several transport options available to take you all over the island. Metered taxis are available, as well as minibuses and limousines for larger groups. Airport buses also run from various destinations across the island and a number of international car rental companies operate from the Arrivals terminal.

Why visit Phuket?

Think of Phuket, and near-perfect beaches come to mind. While the crowds flock to Patong Beach, there are still tranquil, lesser-known beaches to explore on the island’s south and east coasts, which offer a more authentic Thai experience. There’s culture and history to discover too, with night markets in the Old Town providing a feast for the senses, as well as being a great place to try out the local specialties. The town’s mix of 18th-century architecture alongside old Buddhist and Chinese temples brings a rich, eclectic feel to the lively streets.

Do I need a visa for Phuket?

Citizens of the UK and Ireland and EU passport holders may require a visa to visit Phuket, depending on how long they stay. You can find out more about visa requirements for all the countries we fly to on our visa information page.
