Fledgling Cambodian airline to start Bangkok Don Mueang route
Cambodia’s recently launched JC International Airlines has announced a new route to Thailand. The airline is all set to launch services between Phnom Penh and Bangkok Don Mueang Airport on 6 June 2017.
Although JC flies domestic routes and to destinations farther afield in Asia, the Bangkok route will be the first to one of Cambodia’s neighbouring Southeast Asian nations. The airline has not so far released timetables for the Bangkok flights, but did say it would be using one of its Airbus A320s on the route.
JC International Airlines inaugurated flight operations in March 2017 and currently flies five routes. 12GO ASIA noted that JC’s Bangkok flights would provide passengers with even more choices on this popular route between the capital cities of the two nations.
Thai AirAsia already flies from Don Mueang to Phnom Penh while Thai Airways and Bangkok Airways fly from Bangkok’s main air gateway, Suvarnabhumi Airport. 12GO ASIA offers a consolidations service which provides the best available ticket prices for all carriers on the date and route specified.
Vietnam’s mobile telephone services provider Mobifone has inaugurated a programme giving users free access to Facebook. Subscribers with Mobifone SIM cards will be able to log into a slimmed down version of their Facebook accounts even if they have no credit or data balance remaining.
Authorities on Phuket have released a set of plans showing what the island’s airport tramway link will look like. The proposals contain images of the trams in addition to the confirmed route and how much passenger fares will be.
Management authorities at Vietnam’s Can Tho Airport say they are prepared to subsidise losses for airlines starting new routes. The team have put forward a proposal to the national Civil Aviation Authority which offers three different means of incentivising airlines to add the airport to their networks.
