Malaysia Airlines Office Phuket

Well once again I am giving advice on how to find somewhere on the island of Phuket, Thailand. This time it is the only office of Malaysia Airlines and it is on the edge of Phuket Town itself near the Phuket Town Merlin Hotel.

I personal use Malaysia Airlines and it's partners when I fly anywhere, so for me it's important to know where each local office is, as not all activities can be achieved on their website or by telephone.

I have been to this office a number of times and you will find it open most days, except public holidays. They do not close for lunch and to my knowledge the same two girls have been working there for at least 8 years.

Both speak excellent English both at Thai nationals and not Malaysian.

The official address and contact details are :-

Tungka Road Muang District
1/8-9 Tungka Road Muang District
Phuket 83000
+66 76 2166 75
+66 76 2174 00
+66 76 2137 49/2344 67/2166 75

There is plenty of room to park and the office is directly across the car park from the main entrance of the Phuket Merlin Hotel. It can be a little tricky to find as the Malaysia Airlines office is not listed on many if any mapping systems. So it is probably best to insert the Merlin Hotel Phuket Town and follow directions there.

These photos give you an idea of the landmarks and signs to look out for. There are two separate entrances on two different roads, as the office is situated on the corner of two main roads ( Mae Luan Road & Tungkhar Road )at a traffic light junction.

Can I also make a suggestion, that if you are a little hungry or in the very unlikely event the office is busy. Consider popping into the Merlin Hotel as they provide a great low priced local thai buffet lunch.

I found the selection of food excellent and there were plenty of staff and the hotel is clean. Expect t pay about 150 baht (4€) per person, that includes a soft drink.
