Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Monday, 16 November 2009

Pacific Blue has launched direct flights between Perth in Australia and Phuket in southern Thailand.

The new route is Virgin Blue Airlines Group’s first foray into the Thailand market, with the new Pacific Blue flights to provide West Australian travellers with another choice of international destination alongside the airline’s existing flights from Perth to Bali.

The weekly flight is already proving a hit with WA based holiday-makers who have been quick to book flights and take advantage of the special fares.

Phuket rated highly as a preferred destination in customer surveys, due to Thailand being within comfortable flying distance (six and a half hours from Perth), its affordability in terms of entertainment, massages, shopping, delicious dining, vibrant nightlife, the wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets and the cultural experience it offers visitors.

To celebrate the new route, the airline has launched a A$349 one-way “Tuk Tuk Off To Phuket” launch fare on sale until midnight 22 November 2009, for travel on direct flights between Perth and Phuket from January 19 – 23 March, 20 April – 22 June and 20 July – 16 September 2010.

Everyday lead in fares for Perth-Phuket flights start from A$399 one way on the net.

While the launch schedule is designed to allow for a convenient week, three days or ten day Phuket getaway, Virgin Blue has said it will closely monitor demand for the new Phuket flights to determine future schedules and frequencies increases based on support for the new services.
