A Five-Star fully integrated “Private Jet Terminal” in Phuket, attracting high end Superyacht visitors and tourists worldwide, was announced at a Grand Opening ceremony December 16th by Siam Land Flying. The facility, to be fully operational in the early part of 2022, will attract more Superyachts to the worldwide dream destination of Phuket, Thailand.
Private Jets have become an alternative in the new normal tourism, minimizing contact from the airport’s congestion and during flights. The opening of this private terminal is another factor that will increase confidence among tourists who travel by private jets, including superyacht owners. The end-to-end services at the terminal meet the international standards for safety and security but at the same time are faster and more convenient, impressing tourists as they arrive in Phuket, a major superyacht hub in Asia with four well equipped marinas.
Siam Land Flying, which as a subsidiary of Charoen Pokphand Group, is extremely proud to support the Thai tourism industry, stating the facility will draw more tourists with high purchasing power and will generate revenue and spending in the country, as well as creating new jobs for local people. Mr. Greg Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Siam Land Flying Co., Ltd. said at the opening, “The Private Jet Terminal of Siam Land Flying Phuket is fully equipped to provide a premium service for our VIP guests in a discrete and safe manner.”
“The Private Jet Terminal building is situated on a 17-rai area of land in Mai Kao Sub-District, Talang District, Phuket Province. Our 1,200-square-meter Private Jet Terminal features several VIP lounges and all of the services required for smooth travel both internationally and domestically with Immigration, Customs and Disease Control services available on-site.”
The terminal is complemented by approximately 7,000 square meters of hangar space and 12,000 square meters of Apron space to provide safe parking for large-sized private jets. For example, up to 7 Gulfstream G650’s can be accommodated, as well as accommodating ultra large-sized private jets, such as the Boeing Business Jet or Airbus Corporate Jet. Maintenance support can be provided by the licensed aircraft engineers which are part of the Siam Land Flying team. In addition, other services are provided such as shuttle service, hotel reservation & co-ordination, tourism & recreation consultancy, in-flight food & beverage service, and VIP lounges for departing and arriving passengers as well as yacht crews.
