AirAsia has confirmed plans to launch direct flights
between Phuket and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
The airline will operate the new route four times
per week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, starting 1 June 2019.
“Phuket is a very
important strategic flight base for AirAsia that has grown
steadily along with the addition of direct flights to CLMV cities
such as Siem Reap,” said Santisuk Klongchaiya, CEO of Thai
AirAsia. “With the positive response we have received
from international travellers, we decided to add Phuket-Phnom
Penh, connecting the resort town to Cambodia’s capital. The route
should well serve tourists as well as members of the business
community of both countries.”
Thai AirAsia currently operates 8
international routes out of Phuket: Phuket-Wuhan, Phuket-Kunming,
Phuket-Hong Kong, Phuket-Macau, Phuket-Siem Reap,
Phuket-Singapore, Phuket-Kuala Lumpur (Code AK), Phuket-Penang
(Code AK) with the 9th, Phuket-Phnom Penh, starting in June.
