Emirates returns to Phuket
Emirates operated a special flight to Phuket International Airport on November 2, making it the first international carrier to arrive at the popular island destination since Thailand partially re-opened its borders to specific categories of international travellers.
The special flight coincided with the visit of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and a delegation of government leaders who visited the resort island to boost confidence in the tourism sector.
Flight EK376 was operated with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, starting its journey from Dubai International Airport at 0210 and arriving in Phuket at 1420 local time, after a short layover in Bangkok.
