    Tigerair Taiwan to launch only direct Taiwan – Phuket Route

    Budget airline Tigerair is launching direct flights between Taiwan and Phuket, southern Thailand, in May. Tigerair, a subsidiary of China Airlines, will be the only airline currently servicing the Taipei – Phuket route directly, twice per week. Phuket will become the airline’s second destination in Thailand. Tigerair currently serves direct flights between Taoyuan and Don Mueang Airport (DMX) in Bangkok.
    • Flights will depart from Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 12.20 pm.
    • Departing from Phuket International Airport (HKT), flights will run on Wednesdays and Fridays at 4.45 pm.
    Tickets on the route are not yet available to buy on the Tigerair Taiwan website but the airline plans to launch the route as soon as May. In January, China Airlines launched a direct service between Chiang Mai in northern Thailand, and Taiwan. A 180-seat Airbus A321neo services the four-hour route four days a week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
    • AirAsia and Taiwanese airline EVA Air also service the Chiang Mai – Taiwan route.
    • In December, Thai Lion Air resumed its Bangkok – Taiwan service. The route departs from Don Mueang Airport at 8.35pm five times per week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays and arrives in Taipei at 1.25am the next day.
    • In September last year, budget airline Thai Vietjet doubled the frequency of flights between Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and Taoyuon from once to twice per week.
