Should be a winner at that price. Less than US$43 each way.

other governments are smart enough to let their airlines open their own routes into their home country destination when ever they like, too bad KOW only have a government that only knows how to cut trees, dredge sand, dig rocks, impose traffic fines and i almost forget, ask for aids

I sure wish AirAsia would fly Snookyville to KL. HE's government made the "fees" to high four or five years ago when AirAsia was interested and they walked away. It had nothing to do with Vietnam Air owning Cambodia Angkor Air and the new international Airport on the Vietnamese island close to Snooky that has flights from Siam Reap. Not in the interest of Vietnam Air to have tourists flying Into Snooky when they have an Island close that is Vietnamese territory.

vietnam airlines had been blocking direct flight to snooky for years now and KOW is too stupid to realised that previously or they dont care, whichever suits them the most.

Was kinda happy once I saw the headline of this article, but then when I read it the article suggested that it would help bring more tourists from Siem Reap to Phuket. Which is the opposite in my opinion that most of tourists generally come from Thailand into Cambodia.

BTW, the fare is simply reasonable and would like to visit Thailand one day as I have never been there yet. The thing is that I am so afraid to bump into Richard once I am in Phuket. Say hello if you see me mate.
