HK Express’ service departs Hong Kong (HKG) at 02:05 arriving in Jeju at 06:20. Return flights leave at 07:30 arriving back in Hong Kong at 09:20. Siem Reap (REP) in Cambodia will also be served thrice-weekly (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays). The 1,455-kilometre route is also already served by Dragonair with thrice-weekly flights. Commenting on the route launch, HK Express CEO Andrew Cowen said, “Siem Reap marks the 21st destination for HK Express and we’re all very excited about adding this important tourist destination to our expanding route network. Whether it’s an extended holiday or a quick weekend getaway, Siem Reap serves as a great choice for our Hong Kong travellers who now have a true choice when it comes to safe and affordable air travel.” Both new routes started on 1 September and will be served by the airline’s A320s.
