Emirates launches daily linked service to Phnom Penh
Phnom Penh is the first destination within Cambodia to be served by Emirates
Emirates has launched a new daily linked service from Dubai to Phnom Penh (PHN) in Cambodia, via Yangon in Myanmar, expanding its reach in Southeast Asia.
This new service, operated with a Boeing 777 aircraft, broadens the airline’s network in Southeast Asia to 13 cities in eight countries.
It also marks the first time since 2014 that Phnom Penh and Yangon were connected by a direct air link, serving increasing demand for travel between the two fast-developing cities. Phnom Penh is the first destination within Cambodia to be served by Emirates.
Badr Abbas, Emirates’ senior vice president, commercial operations Far East, was on board the inaugural flight on July 1 with a number of senior executives of the airline.
They were joined by a VIP delegation that included business leaders as well as media from the UAE and GCC. The aircraft was greeted in Phnom Penh by a traditional water cannon salute upon arrival.
Flights to Phnom Penh will depart daily from Dubai International Airport (DXB) at 09:15am, arriving in Yangon at 05:25pm. It will then depart Yangon at 6:55pm, before arriving at Phnom Penh International Airport (PNH) at 09:25pm.
