Qatar Airways has launched its first ever flights to the Kingdom of Cambodia.

Qatar Airways’ Doha – Phnom Penh route is being operated daily with an Airbus A330 in a two-class configuration of up to 248 seats in Economy Class and up to 36 in Business. Flights operate via Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam.

“I take this opportunity to thank the Cambodian Government and local airport authorities for their great support in helping us launch daily flights to this wonderful country,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker. “Though Cambodia is one of the fastest growing economies in South East Asia, it has an air travel market that is highly underserved. Qatar Airways is here to fill this void and we look forward to working with the travel trade and our business partners to make this a hugely successful operation. Qatar Airways can seamlessly connect travellers from Cambodia via our Doha hub to diverse cities like Paris, London, Frankfurt, Zurich, Milan, Dubai, Cape Town, New York and Montreal. At the same time, with our new daily service between Doha and Phnom Penh, we offer travellers from around the world access to heritage tourist spots in Cambodia such as the world famous Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap and the picturesque beach island resorts in Sihanoukville.”

The tourism industry, Cambodia’s second largest income source, received 3.6 million international tourists in 2012, a 24% increase on the year before. Cambodia is also home to a new industry following the recent discovery of oil and minerals, offering huge potential for overseas investors.
