PHUKET: The honorary consul to Phuket from Norway proposed on Wednesday that a speedboat taxi service be put in place along the island’s east coast, connecting Phuket International Airport with Chalong.

“There are very few options for locals and tourists to get from the airport to Chalong that are both convenient and affordable,” said Pornphan Sittichaivijit, the Royal Norwegian Honorary Consul for Phuket. “With no efficient form of public transportation, everyone is forced to buy a car or motorbike, which leads to heavier traffic congestion.”
