AirAsia has reinstated its Kuala Lumpur – Siem Reap service with the first flight taking off on 25th April 2022. The Cambodian UNESCO heritage listed city is home to the famed Angkor Wat. Cambodia is one of the first countries in the region to relax its entry requirements for foreign travel, an initiative welcomed by travellers all over the world. The Royal Government of Cambodia officially announced on 15th November 2021 the reopening of the country to welcome fully vaccinated international travellers without the need for quarantine or COVID-19 testing at all international gateways and checkpoints. Malaysia has likewise, removed most such conditions from 1st May 2022.
