Phuket Airport reminds travellers ‘gophuget’ registration still required

PHUKET: Phuket International Airport has reminded travellers that they must still register their intended travel to Phuket through the web portal and have MorChana installed on their phone in order to be cleared to arrive on the island.

The reminder came through a notice posted on the Airports of Thailand Phuket airport (AoT Phuket) official Facebook page, following a visit by Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew yesterday (Apr 1) to inspect the mass vaccination efforts now underway at the airport.

People must wear face masks at all times while in the airport area, and all travellers must register their travel details via and install the Mor Chana app, in accordance with a provincial order issued by the Phuket Governor, AoT Phuket noted.

Also, no people with body temperatures over 37.3°C will be allowed to enter the airport. All people will have their body temperatures checked when entering airport buildings.

“Cleaning and sanitizing have been stepped up at all touchpoints (escalator handrails and luggage cart handles, etc.), and hand sanitizers have been placed throughout the airport,” AoT Phuket also assured.

“Passengers should arrive at the airport at least 1-2 hours before departure time,” the airport management advised.

AoT Phuket yesterday also released its full monthly schedule of domestic flights, showing Bangkok Airways, Thai Lion Air, Vietjet, Nok Air and Thai Smile all flying to and from Phuket, for the month of April.

However, the airport cautioned that the flight schedule was subject to flight changes or flight times without prior notice.

“Please contact the airline directly before booking the ticket,” the notice said.

People can file complaints with the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT), AOT Phuket noted in a separate post today (Apr 2). The CAAT complaint form can be found here.

Meanwhile, the AoT management team responsible for Suvarnabhumi International Airport today issued a reminder that digital capture images and photocopies of boarding passes will not be accepted.

Only e-boarding passes present in an official app or presentation of an email will be accepted, the Suvarnabhumi airport operators confirmed.

As Fascinated experienced, and with him so many others, the obsessed Thai office regimental paper bureaucracy is very different from how Thai practicing it. One can't take it serious, as one can experience it already just on 2 flights. It's all 'loose sand practice'. Just face and show doings.

Interesting- no one checked me going out or coming back last week for gophukget or Mor Chana. I printed off my own boarding passes at each end as well and they were accepted. Someone's telling porkies. Plenty of people not social distancing on the seats and its a joke anyway as people are still crammed onto buses and seated 6 to a row on the plane. I did get a nice little sticker at Swampy tho...
