Touring options with new Asia carriers


New airlines launch in Cambodia, South Korea
The launch of JC International Airlines, which started operations in Cambodia this month with daily flights linking Siem Reap to Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville on two Airbus A320s, has been welcomed by the industry.
It brings the number of local airlines to five, with hopes that the new Chinese-backed carrier will drive down airfares in the country. It should also be easier for travellers on tight itineraries to explore Cambodia beyond Angkor Wat.
“JC is welcome competition for existing airlines operating domestically,” said Mick Spencer, owner of ANA Travel & Tours.
By end-2017, JC plans an additional three planes to begin international routes to Vietnam, China, Japan, South Korea and Europe, according to CEO Dongyan Huang.
Meanwhile, South Korean start-up KAIR Airlines has placed a firm order of eight A320ceo aircraft to launch a new low-cost operation based in Cheongju. It aims to focus on services to international destinations in Asia such as China, Taiwan and Japan.
