Thai AirAsia starts to serve Siem Reap in Cambodia from Bangkok
Thai AirAsia has added a new destination from its Bangkok Don Mueang (DMK) base. Since 1 October the airline has been operating daily to Siem Reap (REP) in Cambodia using its A320s. The two airports are just 350 kilometres apart. This is the airline's second route to Cambodia as it has been operating daily flights to Phnom Penh since November 2005. While there is no direct competition on the route, Bangkok Airways operates five daily flights from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi to Siem Reap, and Cambodia Angkor Air serves the same route with three daily flights.
