China Eastern Airlines has applied to begin two new international services.

The Shanghai-based carrier plans to operate a seven-times-weekly service between Beijing and Siem Reap, says the Civil Aviation Authority of China. It aims to use an Airbus A320 or A330 on the route if its application is successful.

The airline has also applied to operate a seven-times-weekly Chengdu-Phuket service, says the CAAC. It plans to use a Boeing 737 on the route.

The CAAC did not say when China Eastern hopes to begin the services. There are no other airlines serving both routes, according to schedules in Innovata.
