Xiamen Air launches new route from Fujian to Kingdom

Chinese passenger airline Xiamen Air announced yesterday it had officially launched a direct route from Fujian province’s Xiamen city to Phnom Penh.

The airline has scheduled four flights a week for the route, the first of which took off on Sunday.

Zheng Congming, general manager of the passenger sales and marketing department of the airline, said yesterday that the new Cambodia-bound route is the third for his company, following the 2014 launch of Siem Reap-Xiamen and Siem Reap-Fuzhou flights.

Zheng said Xiamen Airlines had carried a total of 154,000 passengers on those two routes since they began operating.
