Airasia Launches New Route From Penang to Phnom Penh

November 9, 2022

Today, Airasia Malaysia has launched a highly-anticipated route from Penang, Malaysia to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. This new route is set to further boost AirAsia's connectivity within Asean and allow for seamless travel between Cambodia, often dubbed the 'Kingdom Of Wonder', and Penang ‒ AirAsia's third largest hub in West Malaysia.

There is no link between the two cities except for an occasional cargo flight by Cathay Pacific Cargo. The brand-new service will launch on 10 December 2022, and is operated by an Airbus A320.

Riad Asmat, CEO of AirAsia Malaysia said:

We are thrilled to be launching this new route to Phnom Penh for the first time from another important hub of ours in Malaysia - the ever bustling city of Penang. Following our flight resumption to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap in Cambodia from Kuala Lumpur earlier this year, this new route further reinforces the popularity and demand for tourism in the Kingdom, and AirAsia is honoured to be able to play a pivotal role in connecting travellers to these popular destinations.

Phnom Penh is no stranger to AirAsia. Prior to the pandemic, we flew thousands of travellers to and from the city each month and now with the lifting of travel restrictions to Cambodia, there has been a surge in demand for more flights and routes. We sincerely thank the Cambodian government for their efforts in enabling seamless travel between the two countries, and we look forward to introducing new routes from Malaysia and beyond in line with growing demand for air travel

The flight schedule is as follows:

AK1236 PEN1230 to 1310PNH A320
AK1237 PNH1400 to 1640PEN A320

To celebrate this momentous announcement, airasia rewards members can grab great value fares for this route for a promotional fare of just RM179 one way or RM428 both ways for a travel period between 10 December 2022 and 25 March 2023 through the airasia Super App or website.
