Thai AirAsia to connect Phuket with Siem Reap

AirAsia has announced it will launch daily flights between Phuket and Siem Reap in November, becoming the first airline to link Thailand’s most popular beach destination to the city that serves as a gateway to Cambodia’s biggest tourist draw, Angkor Wat.

The flights will be operated by AirAsia’s regional subsidiary, Thai AirAsia, whose fleet of 49 Airbus 320 aircraft serve 32 destinations in Asia.

The low-cost carrier’s three daily direct flights from Bangkok to Siem Reap maintain an 85-90 percent load factor year-round and are among its most popular routes in ASEAN, the airline said in a press release.
