“We are pleased to enhance our services to these popular Southeast Asian destinations and offer more choices for travellers in Cambodia and Thailand.

Home to a population of 1.5 million, Phnom Penh International Airport welcomed more than 1.4 million international tourists in 2017, up 21% from the previous year. The city is vital to the country’s tourism industry, receiving 25% of the 5.6 million international tourist arrivals to Cambodia in 2017.

Emirates has been serving Cambodia with passenger flights to Phnom Penh since July 2017, carrying over 100,000 passengers on the route to date. The new daily service between Dubai and Phnom Penh, via Bangkok, will also complement Emirates’ five direct daily services between Dubai and Bangkok.
