Thai Smile Airways, a regional subsidiary of Thai Airways, will launch direct service from Bangkok to Siem Reap next month in a bid for a slice of the growing tourist traffic between the Thai capital and Cambodia’s biggest tourist draw, Thai SmileAngkor Wat. The airline will commence service between Bangkok and Siem Reap with 10 flights weekly starting February 1 using Airbus A-320s in an all-economy configuration of 174 seats.

Sinn Chanserey Vutha, spokesman for the State Secretariat of Civil Aviation, said Thai Smile was issued a permit to operate the route this month, having previously operated flights to Phnom Penh as a codeshare for Thai Airways. “[Thai Smile] had to build its market under the codeshare with the Thai Airways, but now the airline can be independent and have its own flight movements,” he said.
