AirAsia said it has launched its inaugural resumption flight to Phnom Penh from Kuala Lumpur. Riad Asmat, AirAsia Malaysia CEO said, “Phnom Penh has always been a very popular leisure destination for AirAsia in the past, and we are excited to launch the inaugural flight from Kuala Lumpur after almost two years. The overwhelming response as seen today signifies a strong pent-up demand for international leisure travel and we expect a strong rebound as international restrictions continue to ease. AirAsia is proud to support this initiative by the Cambodian government and we look forward to launching more flights to the country soon. From an operational standpoint, we have extensively prepared to ensure all of our guests can travel safely, seamlessly and with peace of mind.” Fully vaccinated travelers from Malaysia who wish to travel to Cambodia must meet the requirements set by the Cambodian government prior to purchasing their flights and upon arrival.

Scoot will also resume two-times weekly passenger service between Singapore and Hanoi from 22 February.
