Bangkok Airways ramps up Phnom Penh route

7 Apr 2009

Bangkok Airways has increased its Bangkok-Phnom Penh route frequency to three times daily and is offering a special promotional fare for business-class travellers.

The service between the Thai and Cambodian capitals includes the Bangkok Airways business class product, the Blue Ribbon Class (BRC), on all of the 70-minute flights.

The route will now be operated by a dual-class Airbus 319, with 12 BRC and 108 Economy Class.

BRC passengers have the added benefits of using the exclusive BRC check-in counter, 40 kgs baggage allowance, BRC lounge access, priority boarding, priority baggage claim, and fast-track immigration service.

A special BRC fare of 9,900 baht (US$280) return, excluding taxes, surcharges and insurance, is available until the end of June.

The Bangkok flights now leave at 0740, 1330, and 1800 while the Phnom Penh flights depart at 0940, 1530 and 2000.

The increased air link comes despite continuing military tension between Cambodia and Thailand over a disputed border region.

Thailand remains one of Cambodia’s major trading partners, with trade between the two southeast nations estimated at US$2bn annually.
