AirAsia Cambodia (flight code KT) took to the skies last week and celebrated its inaugural domestic flight from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap with almost 100 percent passenger load. All guests travelling to Siem Reap on flight KT102 were sent off by Bo Lingam, Group CEO of AirAsia Aviation Group and Vissoth Nam, CEO of AirAsia Cambodia, along with AirAsia management and Allstars. The new airline’s very first flight departed from Phnom Penh International Airport at 7:40am and landed at Siem Reap Angkor International Airport at 8:30am local time.

Subsequently, the airline will also connect Siem Reap to Sihanoukville, connecting three domestic destinations within Cambodia. These initial routes underscore AirAsia Cambodia’s commitment to enhancing connectivity and providing affordable and convenient travel options for Cambodians and visitors alike.

Vissoth Nam, CEO AirAsia Cambodia said: “The launch of our first domestic flights today  marks the beginning of a new chapter in Cambodia’s tourism industry, one where accessibility meets affordability. By providing great value and reliable air travel options, we are empowering Cambodians to explore their own backyard and fostering economic prosperity through increased tourism and business opportunities. The timing of AirAsia Cambodia’s domestic flight launch is also opportune, coinciding with the government’s concerted efforts to attract more tourists to the culturally rich province of Siem Reap through the recently launched ‘Visit Siem Reap 2024’ campaign. AirAsia Cambodia is proud to be at the forefront of this transformative journey in shaping Cambodia’s aviation future and we remain committed to supporting the government’s tourism initiatives across the country by providing affordable travel options for all.”

Bo Lingam, Group CEO of AirAsia Aviation Group said: “We are honoured to jointly celebrate the birth of our seventh AirAsia branded airline with our guests. Leveraging our strong foothold in ASEAN, AirAsia Cambodia is set to provide connectivity to over 130 destinations across Asia and beyond. With a track record of unlocking opportunities in underserved markets, we’re poised to catalyse a new era in Cambodia’s tourism industry and economy by making regional exploration more accessible to all.”

As a group, AirAsia flies to Cambodia internationally from its Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok hubs with 63 flights weekly. Domestically the airline flies between Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville with daily flights.
