Cambodia Angkor Air will expand its international network this year, with the launch of three new routes to neighbouring Vietnam.
The national carrier, which is part-owned by Vietnam Airlines, is planning to launch new flights connecting the Cambodian coastal city of Sihanoukville with Ho Chi Minh City, and Siem Reap with Danang and Hanoi.
The new Sihanoukville-HCMC route will commence on 17 June 2016, operating six times a week. This will make Cambodia Angkor Air the first airline to connect these two cities.
Then on 1 July, the airline will start flying three times a week between Siem Reap and Danang. Both these routes will be operated using Cambodia Angkor Air’s ATR 72 turboprop aircraft.
And later in 2016, Cambodia Angkor Air plans to launch a new service linking Siem Reap with Hanoi.
These new routes will complement the airline’s existing Vietnamese services linking Phnom Penh and Siem Reap with HCMC, and Phnom Penh with Hanoi.
