AirAsia will commence four-times weekly flights between Kuala Lumpur and Sihanoukville on August 9, 2017, marking the Malaysia-based LCC's third route into Cambodia after Phnom Penh and Siem Reap..
Located in south-western Cambodia at the Gulf of Thailand, Sihanoukville – the country’s fourth-largest city – is known for its unspoiled beaches and natural beauty, said AirAsia in a statement.

Spencer Lee, head of commercial for AirAsia, said: “Sihanoukville is an exciting destination with many untouched gems that have yet to be discovered... We aim to develop Sihanoukville to become a tourist hotspot like how AirAsia has introduced unique destinations such as Luang Prabang, Banda Aceh and Bhubaneswar among others and we believe this route introduction will be the first vital step to unlock more travel options for visitors into the coastal city.”
Flight AK264 will depart from Kuala Lumpur at 12.15 every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, to arrive in Sihanoukville at 13.00.
The return flight, AK265, will take off from Sihanoukville at 13.40 on the same day to land in Kuala Lumpur at 16.30.
