AirAsia Cambodia improves inter-city travel

The launch of AirAsia Cambodia took off earlier this month and Asian Trails’ Managing Director for Cambodia Virginie Kury was honoured to have a seat on the inaugural flight.

The opening event was attended by H.E. Sok Soken, Cambodia’s Minister of Tourism and H.E. Dr Mao Havannal, the Minister in Charge of the Secretariat of Civil Aviation, as well as key players in the domestic travel industry.

After taking the 30-minute flight on one of the airline’s brand new Airbus A320s, Virginie expressed her confidence in the future of the nation’s travel landscape.

She said: “The launch of AirAsia Cambodia will open up the skies of Cambodia and pave the way for new players in the domestic market. Flying between Cambodia’s major cities will not only be more convenient, it will also become more affordable.”

The new flights will enhance Asian Trails’ tour programmes, making a pre- or post-trip extension to Cambodia’s southern islands more alluring and more wallet-friendly than ever before. After exploring the ancient Angkorian temples of Siem Reap, guests can take a one-hour flight directly to Sihanoukville, Cambodia’s leading seaside destination.

From there, it’s just a short transfer by car and boat to reach the white sand beaches of Koh Rong Island. Discover our Beach Extension: Siem Reap to Koh Rong (4 days) or learn more about the island’s premier beachfront resort, Royal Sands Koh Rong.

AirAsia Cambodia operates multiple daily flights between Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville. For details about flights and schedules or to plan a tour programme, contact our team at Asian Trails Cambodia.
