Shorter route from VN

VIETNAM has finalised new air routes that will cut flight times to Cambodia, according to local press reports Thursday. Flights from Danang and the capital Hanoi would now take a shorter route through Laos over Vilao and Pakse cutting flight times to Cambodia’s two main hubs Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, Vietnam News Agency reported. The new flight path would cut 25 minutes off flight times to Siem Reap, according to the revised route, which is part of the Vietnam Airlines itinerary to the Kingdom. These routes previously did not pass over Laos thus avoiding fly-over fees.
