The idea that there will be busy days for Phuket airport while the world is in turmoil because a war Russian Putin started. Last thing the 'world' thinks is about a Phuket holiday. Place were Thai officials still embrace ridiculous 'Test & Come positve  to Phuket hospital' procedure, while Covid infections mainly play among Thai. A Thailand holiday is a big costly problem. Who ...

There is still a major problem costing Phuket missed SHA+ bookings.
The Thailand Pass website says the hotel booking must include the fee for the PT PCR test. This test is conducted at Phuket Airport by the Government so arrivees look for hotels which include the PCR test such as the Bangkok hotels.
Needs to be corrected!

According sanctions ruling Russia must have returned leased aircrafts by 28 March to lease companies. Russia can only fly now in Russia and Belarus if they not want to hand in the hundreds leased aircrafts. Samsung stops chip- and mobile phone business with Russia.

Hundreds russian aircrafts are leased. Now this moment these aircrafts touch down abroad they will be confiscated. Italy confiscate houses of russians. European ports start blocking entrance to russian ships, even confiscate them in their waters. Many foreign businesses stop in Russia. Heineken stops export to Russia. Far too many businesses to mention here are withdrawing from Russia.

Flight schedules subject to change without any notice??? That is as good as not having schedules at all!! And wait a second,.. It is not Russia closing airspace to every country in Europe. It is the other way around. Europe/Usa, etc. closed airspace/routes to russian traffic. It is the civilised free world that actually stap by stap isolate/ban Russia in everything, aks Russians on Phuket.
