Cambodia Angkor Air (K6, Siem Reap) is planning to expand its network coverage across Asia with the arrival of additional Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) equipment.
According to the Khmer Times, the Chairman of Cambodia Angkor Air, Tek Reth Samrach, told a press conference late last month that the carrier was looking to add four ATRs and eight Airbuses by 2020. At present, it operates two A320-200s, one A321-200, and three ATR72-500s on scheduled flights throughout Cambodia as well as to Vietnam, Hong Kong, and China.
“Our new routes would include Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, South Korea, Macau and India,” he said. “We hope to get more Chinese passengers, with the government’s plan to attract two million Chinese tourists by 2020.”
As part of its expansion plan, Cambodia Angkor Air has also reached codesharing deals with local airline Bassaka Air (5B, Phnom Penh) as well as T’way Air (TW, Seoul Gimpo), ANA – All Nippon Airways (NH, Tokyo Haneda), and Lao Airlines (QV, Vientiane).
