Flight S7 6329 from Irkutsk, located beside Lake Baikal, north of Mongolia, touched down at Phuket International Airport at 7:10pm.

The flight brought 136 foreign tourists to Phuket entering the country under the new entry requirements brought into effect on Nov 1, reported the Phuket office of Airports of Thailand (AoT Phuket).

Present to welcome the arrivals at Gate 15 were Phuket Vice Governor Piyapong Chuwong along with Phuket airport General Manager Monchai Tanode and representatives from the Tourism Authority of Thailand Phuket office (TAT Phuket).

The arrival of the flight marked a return of regular services to Phuket by S7 Airlines, sometimes still referred to by its previous name Siberia Airlines, which now operates roundtrip flights from Novosibirsk, Vladivostok, Irkutsk, Moscow and Krasnoyarsk.

The return of S7 flights follows the arrival last Saturday (Nov 6) of the first regular Aeroflot flight to Phuket in 19 months.

Russian Consul General in Phuket Vladimir Sosnov told Russian state news agency TASS that starting this week Aeroflot will operate two regular weekly flights from Moscow to Phuket.

Starting on Tuesday (Nov 9), Russia set to resume regular scheduled flights to and from Thailand, with flights from Moscow to Bangkok and Phuket operating twice a week and flights from Russian airports that have resumed international flights operating one flight a week on each route, he said.
