Dragonair launches new seasonal service to Siem Reap

24 Jul 2013

(Hong Kong) Dragonair today announced that it will launch a new four-times-weekly seasonal service to Siem Reap, the closest gateway to the ancient temples of Angkor, from 27 October 2013 (subject to government approval). The new service will further strengthen the airline’s network in Asia and offer more choice and greater convenience to passengers travelling to and from Cambodia.

Siem Reap will become the 13th destination to have been launched or resumed by Dragonair since April 2012. It will also be the airline’s second destination in Cambodia. Dragonair currently operates scheduled services 10 times every week between Hong Kong and the capital city, Phnom Penh.

The airline will operate the new Siem Reap route using Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, departing Hong Kong every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. In addition to being the closest city to the famous complex of temples centred on Angkor Wat, a UNESCO heritage site, Siem Reap is a popular tourist destination in its own right, charming tourists with a unique blend of Chinese and French architecture and various cultural attractions. 

Cambodia is an increasingly popular destination and this latest destination launch will connect passengers from around the world into the burgeoning country. It will also offer more choices and increased convenience for customers travelling out of Cambodia and connecting to Dragonair’s Mainland China network, or the international network of sister airline Cathay Pacific, through the Hong Kong hub.

Dragonair Chief Executive Officer Patrick Yeung said: “We are delighted to add Siem Reap to our ever-expanding network in Asia. Our new service to this increasingly popular tourist destination will further strengthen Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s leading aviation hubs and further promote tourism and business ties between Hong Kong and Cambodia.”
