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.
Municipal authorities in Cambodia’s Kompong Thom Province say the recent UNESCO designation of a temple complex has led to a surge in visitor numbers. UNESCO added the province’s temples of Sambor Prei Kuk to the World Heritage Site list on 8 July.
Thailand’s one and only drum making village is preparing to stage an annual festival dedicated to showcasing the percussion instrument. The Ang Thong International Drum Festival will take place between the 26 and 30 July at locations in the province’s Ekkarat Sub-district.
Transport authorities in Hanoi say numerous tourists have taken advantage of the city’s new transportation option for sightseeing. The bright red double-decker bus looks as though it could have been plucked from the streets of London and even has the same open upper deck as the sightseeing buses there.
