The result revealed that the positive economic impact borne to Phuket province was about 32 billion baht or almost 120 percent increasing from initial impact of 15 billion baht. Also, total economic impact to AOT was around 3.6 billion baht or 99 percent increasing from initial impact of 1.8 billion baht. Development project of Phuket International Airport was thus worthwhile to do so as to improve our facilities for being able to fit a higher demand in tourism industry in the near future. From economic integration like AEC, we should take this advantages by developing our infrastructures or facilities to match with greater interdependence.
