Emirates to resume daily Phnom Penh service in May

PHNOM PENH: Airlines will bring back its daily Phnom Penh service starting from May 1 via Singapore, boosting the airline's Southeast Asian connectivity to/from Dubai, and linking two trade and leisure centres in the region, a press release issued on Feb. 29.

Emirates thanks the Cambodian and Singaporean authorities for their support in establishing this new route, said Adnan Kazim, Emirates' Deputy President, and Chief Commercial Officer.

“The resumption of our Phnom Penh services demonstrates our commitment to strengthening our Southeast Asian network, as we continue to create more opportunities for travelers to explore diverse and culturally rich destinations, and help businesses and exporters of all sizes establish stronger trade connections,” Adnan Kazim said.

The service will be operated with a three-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Emirates' flight EK348 will depart Dubai at 0230hrs and arrives in Singapore at 1405hrs. The flight will then depart Singapore at 1535hrs arriving in Phnom Penh at 1635hrs.

Emirates' return flight EK349 will leave Phnom Penh at 2050hrs and arrives in Singapore at 2350hrs. The flight will then depart Singapore at 0140hrs the next day arriving in Dubai at 0455hrs. All times are local.

Phnom Penh's linked schedule with Singapore is conveniently timed, providing optimal connecting opportunities to and from multiple cities in France, UK, Germany, Switzerland and the United States.

Emirates SkyCargo will also offer cargo bellyhold capacity on the Boeing 777-300ER of more than 300 tonnes per week in and out of Phnom Penh. Main commodities exported from Phnom Penh includes textiles, pharmaceuticals, and other high-value commodities.

Emirates has been serving with its flights to Phnom Penh since July 2017 before it discontinued service in 2021, the year the coronavirus pandemic hit hard of demand for air travel.
