Hua Hin Airport is set to welcome direct flights from at least five other countries from as early as next month, according to Udon Olsson, advisor to the Transport Ministry and chairman of the Phoenix Aviation Group Thailand.
Speaking to local property agent Arnold Ruijs, Mr Udon said that flights will first arrive from Singapore, Hong Kong, South China and India, during the first phase of the airport’s expansion plans, which are being carried out by the Phoenix Aviation Group.
Air Asia will also resume its flight to Kuala Lumpur, which had been operating before the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hua Hin’s currently underused and under-utilised airport will welcome daily flights from countries within a 6 hour flight radius from Thailand.
Mr Udon added that flights from Singapore, India and Hong Kong are likely to be serviced by two airlines each – JetStar and Scoot (Singapore), GoFirst and Discover the World (India) and Greater Bay Airlines and Hong Kong Express (Hong Kong).
