The maiden flight from the Vietnamese capital landed at the Siem Reap International Airport on Saturday 7:20 pm, boosting the travel options for tourists from both countries.
Bamboo Airways officials said it operates the modern Embraer-190 aircraft, providing “utmost convenience and flight experience” for passengers.
The airline is looking to expand its international flight services, Thach Pierre Hoang, Deputy CCO of Bamboo Airways, said in a statement.
“This first nonstop Hanoi-Siem Reap flight is Bamboo Airways’ next effort in our journey of expanding international presence. We are more than delighted to offer five-star oriented services at Siem Reap International Airport and look forward to leveraging this valuable partnership with many more upcoming routes in the future,” Hoang said.
He expressed hope that the new flight would help boost the cooperation of both countries.
“We expect our new Vietnam-Cambodia route will fulfill its crucial role as aviation bridge and make a substantial contribution to the development of both countries in all aspects such as tourism, economy, culture,” he said.
Stephen King, Chief Commercial Officer at Cambodia Airports, said the company, which operates the Kingdom’s three international airports, was happy to welcome Bamboo Airways to the country.
“In this challenging time, it is a breakthrough to welcome a new carrier. We are delighted to welcome Bamboo Airways today. We know passengers will appreciate the extra choice offered by the airline’s new service linking Vietnam’s vibrant capital Hanoi and the wonderful city of Siem Reap,” King said in a statement.
He said the new development would help boost the tourism prospects. International tourists depend on the Siem Reap airport to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Archeological Complex.
