Hong Kong Airlines has launched its inaugural flight to Phnom Penh.
The airline touched down in the Cambodian capital for the first time on 27 February 2016, marking the start of a new thrice weekly scheduled service.
Flights will now depart Hong Kong International Airport every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 1400, arriving in Phnom Penh at 1545. The return flights then leave at 1720 and arrive back in Hong Kong at 2110.
All flights will be operated using Hong Kong Airlines’ 152-seat, two-class Airbus A320 aircraft.
“We are glad to see overwhelming response from travellers for the launch of Phnom Penh route. No matter for business or leisure travellers, the booming economic growth in Cambodia and distinctive tourist attractions like royal palaces are greatly attractive. With this new route, we hope to show passengers from around the world the beauty and ancient charm of Phnom Penh, and promote the connection between two cities,” said Li Dianchun, Hong Kong Airlines’ chief commercial officer.
Hong Kong Airlines’ route network now covers 30 cities across the Asia Pacific region.
