New routes are scheduled to link Thailand’s capital city with Phnom Penh and Cam Ranh International Airport in Vietnam.
Bangkok Airways has launched direct flights connecting Thailand’s capital city and Cam Ranh International Airport in Viet Nam’s central province of Khanh Hoa from 25 January.
The carrier offers four flights weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, using the 144-seat Airbus A319. The direct flight takes nearly two hours. The PG994 flight from Cam Ranh is scheduled to land in Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok later the same day.
Bangkok Airways is the first international airline to open a direct flight between Bangkok and Cam Ranh. This will be the fourth destination of the carrier in Vietnam, following the launch of the air routes of Bangkok-Da Nang in May 2016, Bangkok-Phu Quoc in October 2017 and Chiang Mai-Ha Noi in March 2018. The route has been seen as a diplomatic bridge between Viet Nam and Thailand in terms of tourism, economy and social affairs.
Located near the resort city of Nha Trang in Khanh Hoa Province, Cam Ranh boasts pristine and mesmerising beaches that have yet to be marred by human influences. This year, Khanh Hoa Province will host the National Tourism Event themed “Nha Trang - Colours of the Sea,” with multiple culture-tourism activities.
Meanwhile, in the latest announcement from Emirates, the airline will link Phnom Penh and Bangkok with a new daily service, scheduled to launch from 1 June. The service from Dubai to Phnom Penh, via Bangkok, will provide passengers travelling between the capital cities of Cambodia and Thailand with more flight options.
