On December 12, the Cambodian airline announced the opening of the single non-stop flight from Phnom Penh to Hanoi with the intention of promoting international business activities.
Additionally, the Siem Reap-Ho Chi Minh City route is expected to be a huge step in the exchange of culture and tourism potential between Cambodia and Vietnam.
On the occasion of opening the new routes, Lanmei Airlines announced a give-away programme for the first two flights departing from Hanoi on December 20 and December 22 as well as for the first five flights of the Siem Reap-Ho Chi Minh City route departing on December 20-27.
Thanks to the three pillars of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Sihanoukville, as well as the current thriving tourism market, Lanmei Airlines has been able to create “on & off board” and “on & off line” distinctive product platforms.
Inspired by the affordable airline model, the Cambodian airline strives to become a new public network airline which meets the leaping demand of air travel within the country as well as constructing an “air-highway” for economic, trade, and cultural exchanges among the six nations of the Greater Mekong. The carrier specifically applies narrow-body aircraft with simple and practical structure to reduce costs and maximize aircraft capacity.
The airline set the target of acquiring an aircraft fleet of 20 Airbus A320 models by the end of 2020, connecting three cities in Cambodia, Phnom Penh (PNH), Siem Reap (REP), Sihanouk Ville (KOS) to overseas destinations within and outside the ASEAN, such as Vietnam (Hanoi-HAN and Ho Chi Minh City-SGN), Thailand (Bangkok-BKK), Myanmar (Yangon-RGN), Singapore (SIN), Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur-KUL), Macau (MFM), Hong Kong (HKG), Taiwan, China, the Republic of Korea (Seoul-ICN), Japan (Tokyo-NRT), and India.
Lanmei Airlines Co., Ltd. is a Phnom Penh-headquartered aviation enterprise established on March 7, 2016. The corporation commenced its maiden flight on September 29, 2017.
