VietJet Air has launched its first ever flight to Cambodia.
The Vietnamese low-cost carrier operated its inaugural service from Hanoi to Siem Reap this month, marking the start of a new daily service.
Flights will now depart Hanoi’s Noi Ba International Airport every day at 1715, arriving in Siem Reap International Airport at 1905. The return service then leaves the Cambodian city at 2015, getting back into the Vietnamese capital at 2205.
As with all of VietJet’s flights, the Siem Reap route will be operated using a 180-seat, all-economy class Airbus A320 aircraft.
The new routes marks the continuation of VietJet’s international expansion strategy. The airline also recently commenced services to Singapore, Taipei, Seoul and Busan, in addition to its long-standing Bangkok flights.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has given it permission to launch flights to Chengdu and Kunming in future, and services to India are also in the pipeline.
Siem Reap is the gateway city to the UNESCO World Heritage listed temples of Angkor Wat.
