The New Phuket International Airport is a proposed development to serve Phuket. Also referred to as the Phang Nga - Andaman International Airport and Queen Jammathewi New International Airport,, it is planned to be developed in Phang Nga Ban Khok Kruad district. The airport is expected to be completed by 2025 and is also being developed to boost tourism in the 'Andaman Triangle' of Krabi, Phang-nga and Phuket.

May-2018. Airports of Thailand's board approved plans to develop new airports in Phuket and Chiang Mai, requiring approximately THB120 billion (USD3.7 billion) and to be operational by 2025. The planned Phuket airport will be constructed in Phang Nga Ban Khok Kruad district. It is approximately 25km from the existing Phuket International Airport.

Jul-2017. Thailand's Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon stated the Phang Nga - Andaman International Airport development project will suspend all works until further public consultation with all affected provinces. The Royal Forest Department claimed the project does not have an environmental impact assessment. The project is set to utilise 320ha of reserved forest land.
