Xiamen-Phuket tourist charter flight makes maiden flight

The Orient Thai Airlines Boeing 737-300 took off from Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport directly to Phuket, the hottest tourist destination in Southeast Asia on 18th January, 2013 with only a 4-hour traveling time.

It was the first ever direct flight from Xiamen, China to Phuket, Thailand. The round-trip route will run every 6 days with 132 seats (including 8 business class seats) every flight, and the ticket prices range from RMB3,680 to RMB5,980.

The flight will take off from Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport at 14:40, and arrive at Phuket International Airport at 17:40 (local time).

Statistics showed that the passengers on the maiden flight were mostly young people, and the Governor of Phuket, Maitri Inthusut, who arrived in Xiamen a few days ago on an inspection tour also took the maiden flight back to Thailand.

According to a local travel agency in Xiamen, they have pushed forward a high-quality “No Shopping” travel package for the Xiamen-Phuket charter flight-seeing tours.

Phuket, the largest island in Thailand, has become one of Asia's most popular beach destinations for its spectacular scenery, stunning tropical sunsets and warm blue sea.
