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.
The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) has resumed services on the southbound route from Bangkok to Suratthani and Hat Yai. Train services were temporarily halted yesterday as floodwaters swamped the tracks near the seaside resort town of Hua Hin.
Senior Thai government ministers are currently debating whether to extend the opening days for the Royal Crematorium. The site of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s cremation was supposed to have been open until the end of this month and then demolished.
Residents and tourists say Hanoi’s later opening hours for nightlife have made the city a more exciting place. Under regulations passed late last year, pubs and cafés were allowed to apply to extend their opening hours from midnight until 02:00 at weekends.
