Emirates will link Phnom Penh (PNH) and Bangkok (BKK) with its new daily service set to launch on June 1, 2019. The service from Dubai to Phnom Penh, via Bangkok, will provide passengers travelling between the capital cities of Cambodia and Thailand with more flight options. Travellers from both Southeast Asian nations will also enjoy access to Emirates’ global network, with enhanced 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 (DXB) at 0845hrs local time, as EK370, and arrive in Bangkok at 1815hrs. The same flight will then depart Bangkok at 2000hrs, before arriving at Phnom Penh International Airport at 2125hrs. On the return segment, flight EK371 will depart Phnom Penh at 2320hrs, and will arrive in Bangkok at 0040hrs, the following day. It will then set off to Dubai at 0225hrs, arriving at 0535hrs. All times are local.
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. Trade links between the UAE, Cambodia and Thailand will also be supported with daily Emirates cargo services on the same route.
Emirates, in cooperation with its regional codeshare partners Bangkok Airways, Jetstar Asia and Jetstar Pacific, will offer customers enhanced connectivity and the ability to build travel itineraries that include other domestic destinations in Cambodia, Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries. The daily service between Dubai and Phnom Penh, via Bangkok, will also complement Emirates’ five direct daily services between Dubai and Bangkok. From Bangkok, travellers can also fly directly to Hong Kong on Emirates. In addition to the Thai capital, Emirates also operates 14 weekly flights between Phuket and Dubai in the winter (seven weekly flights during summer season).
Onboard, Emirates passengers in all cabins can stay connected throughout the flight with pre-loaded 20MB of free Wi-Fi data. They will also be treated to regionally-inspired dishes as well as be spoilt for choice with Emirates’ wide selection of premium and exclusive wines and spirits. In Business Class, travellers can look forward to unprecedented levels of comfort with wider, ergonomic seats and choose from up to 4,000 channels showing the latest TV and on-demand content in multiple languages with Emirates’ award-winning ‘ice’ inflight entertainment system, including the most recent Blockbuster hit movies.
