GX Airlines launch first scheduled international service between Nanning and Siem Reap. The new Chinese carrier plans to fly this route twice a week. GX Airlines will use an A320 to ferry passengers on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The route isn't without competition, however, from Lanmei Airlines and Cambodia Angkor Air. Both airlines already provide flights twice a week from Nanning to Siem Reep, so it will be interesting to see what this does to flight prices. This is just one of the 32 destinations GX Airlines will be flying to and from from the end of this year.
