Spring Airlines, China’s largest low-cost carrier (LCC), will launch two new direct flights this coming Friday between Cambodian and Chinese cities, the airline announced a few days ago.
The first flight will operate three times a week between Phnom Penh and Guangzhou, while the other will connect Siem Reap to Shenzhen. Spring Airlines first launched a Siem Reap to Guangzhou service earlier in September.
The carrier just expanded as well in Malaysia with a three-time a week new route linking Shenzhen to Kota Kinabalu. Flights will occur on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. The carrier plans to launch more than 10 new international routes by the end of the year, according to the Spring VP Zhang Wu’an.
Teh Shanghai-based carrier is expected to open more than 40 international routes by the end of 2016, reflecting the explosive growth of Chinese citizens’ outbound travel.
