Qatar Airways announced it will restart flights to Phuket next month.
From 4 December it resumes flights to the Thai island using Boeing 777 aircraft with 42 flatbed seats in business class and 312 seats in economy.
“We are excited to resume operations to Phuket to further provide global connectivity to our Thai passengers. This year also marks our 10th year of operations between Phuket and Doha,” said Jared Lee, Vice President of Sales, South East Asia and South Asia.
It will initially operate a weekly flight and is in talks to increase the number of flights from 10 December.
The airline currently flies to Thai capital Bangkok 14 times a week.
Thailand recently opened Phuket as a second entry point after Bangkok for foreign tourists under the special tourist visa scheme.
