Budget airlines are not that bad and over the years we have flown with many budget airlines.

Some of the flights have been direct flights into Phuket and others with short stopovers along the way.

The low cost carriers that we have flown with include Jetstar, Air Asia and Air Asia X, Virgin Australia and Scoot.
Like all budget carriers if you want the extras you will have to pay.

If you are prepared to do your research and book online you will find a host of cheap flights to Phuket.

Air Asia X have great deals for flights from London and Dubai and from the Australian ports of Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and the Gold Coast.

Air Asia X fly direct to Kuala Lumpur and then a short one hour flight onto Phuket.



You will find the seats on Air Asia X are not as wide as most airlines  and there is restricted legroom for tall people.

We recommend that you pick your seats and try to get seats with extra leg room. Or pay the extra and book the XL seats for long-haul overnight flights.

If you get a good deal on the XL seats they are still a cheaper option  compared to booking first or business class with the major airlines.

Overall we have found Air Asia X great to fly with and for the price, we have no complaints.
