Emirates will link Phnom Penh and Bangkok with its new daily service set to launch on June 1. The service from Dubai to Phnom Penh, via Bangkok, will provide passengers traveling between the capital cities of Cambodia and Thailand with more flight options. Travelers from both Southeast Asian nations will also enjoy access to Emirates' global network, with connectivity to over 150 destinations in 86 countries and territories.
The new service will be operated with an Emirates Boeing 777 aircraft. Flights to Phnom Penh will depart daily from Dubai International Airport at 8:45 a.m. local time, as EK370, and arrive in Bangkok at 6:15 p.m. The same flight will then depart Bangkok at 8 p.m., before arriving at Phnom Penh International Airport at 9:25 p.m. On the return segment, flight EK371 will depart Phnom Penh at 11:20 p.m., and will arrive in Bangkok at 12:40 a.m., the following day. It will then set off for Dubai at 2:25 a.m., arriving at 5:35 a.m.
Emirates has been serving Cambodia with its flights to Phnom Penh since July 2017, carrying over 100,000 passengers on the route to date. As Cambodia's largest and most rapidly developing city, Phnom Penh contributes significantly to the country's economic growth and continues to witness a significant increase in foreign tourist arrivals.
"We are pleased to enhance our services to these popular Southeast Asian destinations and offer more choices for travelers in Cambodia and Thailand," said Adnan Kazim, Emirates' divisional senior vice president, strategic planning, revenue optimization and aeropolitical affairs.
