SILKAIR launched a new SingaporeSiem ReapDanangSingapore triangular route on January 3.

The service is operated with Airbus 320 aircraft on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, departing from Singapore at 14.25, from Siem Reap at 16.20 and from Danang at 18.40, returning to Singapore at 22.55. SilkAir manager Cambodia, Mr Samuel Lim, said cabin factors currently hovered between 20 and 40 per cent on the route. “With promotional support from our overseas offices and those of our partner, Singapore Airlines, we expect improvement in cabin factors in the near future,” he said.

Last year, Bangkok Airways (PG) dropped Danang from its circular, five-destination World Heritage Route originating in Bangkok. The Thai carrier's communications director, Ms Nandhika Varavarn, said although the SilkAir route was a similar product, “the origins for these routes, Bangkok and Singapore, are very different cities, appealing to different customers”.
