The airline is confident that international travellers will take up the opportunity to fly between the two popular destinations.

Phuket and Siem Reap are both world renowned destinations, especially among Americans, European and Asian travellers, with each offering its own unique potential, explained Tassapon Bijleveld, Chief Executive Officer of Thai AirAsia.

By becoming the first airline to offer a Phuket-Siem Reap route, AirAsia believes it can stimulate tourism at both locations and bring Asean ever closer together, he noted.

“AirAsia’s intention is to create the most extensive flight network and to open up new opportunities in Asean. The Phuket-Siem Reap route perfectly encompasses all of our goals,” Mr Tassapon said.

“The latest flight allows everyone in Phuket to travel to the World Heritage City that is Siem Reap to experience the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat and the equally impressive Bayon, not to mention Siem Reap’s one-of-a-kind nightlife,” he added.

At the same time, the route is sure to draw travellers from Siem Reap to Phuket.

Thai AirAsia currently operates the most flights within Asean, flying 15 routes to seven countries. The airline’s three daily direct flights from Bangkok to Siem Reap maintain an 85-90% load factor year-round and are among AirAsia’s most popular routes in Asean.

To launch the new route, AirAsia is offering bookings starting at B1,490 per person each way. The promotion, available today (Sept 19) through October 2, is for travel between November 7, 2016 and October 28, 2017.
