Flight AQ1201 departed from Guiyang Longdongbao International Airport on March 14, marking the first direct passenger flight between Guiyang and Thailand's Phuket Island in the three years since the COVID-19 outbreak.
The flight route is operated by 9 Air Co every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Tourists can choose a group tour, self-guided tour or semi-self-guided tour, or simply book tickets.
The flight not only marks the deepening of the friendship between China and Thailand, but also meets the travel expectations of tourists from both countries.
To prepare for the resumption of the flight, Guiyang Longdongbao International Airport established a work team to help tourists with health declaration and offer consulting services on customs policies.

After three years of development, the ecological environment in Phuket Island has been improved and restored, the sea has become clearer, the scenery more beautiful, and the infrastructure better developed.
In the future, Guizhou will launch more Thailand tour products according to tourists' diversified and personalized needs in order to boost the recovery of tourism in both countries.
