In LCC news, Jetstar has increased frequencies to Yangon (4 weekly), Penang (9 weekly) and Phnom Penh (daily).

Actually, I'm not too sure why Jetstar doesn't offer connections to Tokyo Narita from Singapore, especially since both the Manila-Osaka and Manila-Tokyo flight allows connections to Singapore both ways.
rumour has it

Arrivals at Cambodia’s airports up 20 per cent

Phnom Penh Post
May Kunmakara

Wednesday, 11 April 2012

Arrivals at Cambodia’s two biggest airports increased by about 20 per cent year-on-year in the first quarter of 2012, according to Cambodia Airports.

Industry insiders said economic progress in the region coupled with increased flights added to the passenger count at Phnom Penh International Airport and Siem Reap International Airport, which saw increases of 14 per cent and 25 per cent, respectively.

The two airports counted 608,281 arrivals during the first quarter, up from 505,318 during the same period last year. International arrivals rose by about 27 per cent during the period.

“The improvement in the Asia-Pacific economy also contributed to the growth. We noticed a lot of tourists from these countries where there is a large number of middle class people,” Minister of Tourism Thong Khon said.

About 1.84 million tourists from ASEAN and East Asian countries visited Cambodia in 2011, or 69 per cent of total incoming tourists, ministry data showed.

Ho Vandy, co-chair of Cambodia’s Tourism Working Group, said airlines have boosted flights on increased demand.

“I noticed that some existing airlines are increasing the number of flights because they have an increase in number of passengers to our country.”

Figures from Cambodia Airports also showed that the amount of cargo passing through Phnom Penh International Airport rose by about 30 per cent, while domestic cargo through Siem Reap International Airport rose by 91.17 per cent.

Flights from Manila ready for take-off .

May Kunmakara
Thursday, 12 April 2012


The Philippines’ Cebu-Pacific Airlines will launch direct flights to Siem Reap from Manila on April 19, according to a Cambodian civil aviation official.

Soy Sokhan, under-secretary of state of the Kingdom’s State Secretariat of Civil Aviation, said the two ASEAN nations had signed a bilateral agreement on April 10 to commence flights between the cities after months of negotiations and market research.

“They will land at Siem Reap International Airport on the 19th with an Airbus 320 at 9:30pm,” he said, adding the planes carried about 150 passengers each.

The Philippine airline sought to take advantage of Siem Reap’s status as a big tourist destination, Soy Sokhan said.

Flights will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and flights between Phnom Penh and Jakarta are expected soon.

Tourism Minister Thong Khon pointed to the new connection as a sign of the region’s continued moves towards economic integration in 2015.

“It shows an improvement in connectivity. The tourism industry cannot grow without connectivity,” he said.

Flight between Siem Reap to Jakarta is more appropriate, since very few Indonesians travel to Phnom Penh

Flights from Madrid land in Siem Reap


By Rann Reuy
Monday, 23 April 2012
Phnom Penh Post

Planes carrying more than 1,000 Spanish tourists landed in Siem Reap on Saturday, in what tourism officials called a positive signal from Europe during a time of economic instability.


The tour that brought 1,290 tourist in on four chartered planes saw some of the first direct tourism-oriented flights from Madrid, Spain. It also brought some of the largest planes – three Airbus 330s and one Boing 767 – ever to land in Siem Reap.


“It’s the first time big planes land here. I hope it will attract more European tourists,” said Kong Sangvar, managing director of Orchestra Travel & Tours, an agency that helped organise the trip.



Although there are no plans for direct flights, the chartered flights have put tourism potential from Spain on some officials’ radars.


“Permanent flights needs long-term research because it is based on passengers from Spain,” Tith Vanna, Siem Reap International Airport director, said.


Ang Kim Eang, president of the Cambodian Association of Travel Agents, said the trip signifies that Europe was not a dead market for Cambodian tourism.
