TUI Travel has announced that it is to start direct flights to Phuket in Thailand from November 2013. The tour operator will be using its new 787 Dreamliner. Customers will be able to make bookings from 15 November 2012.
Flights will be direct from Gatwick but it’s not clear whether the flights will be non-stop. Previous Thomson charter flights, that stopped in around 2006, had a re-fuelling stop in Abu Dhabi.
Until this announcement there are no other direct flights from the UK to Phuket. Other airlines operate via Bangkok.
