The launch of the daily Dubai-Phnom Penh service will coincide with the introduction of a nonstop flight between Dubai and Hanoi, also on 1 July. The Emirates flight to Hanoi will no longer make a stop in Yangon.

Phnom Penh, is the most populous city in Cambodia with fast developing garments and tourism industries.

There were more than 4.7 million foreign tourist arrivals to Cambodia in 2015 and this is forecast to rise to 8 million by 2020. The opening of the Phnom Penh Airport terminal extension in March, last year, will speed up growth, effectively doubling passenger capacity.

The new Dubai-Yangon-Phnom Penh route will also enable passengers from Yangon to travel to Phnom Penh and vice versa as Emirates enjoys full traffic rights with ticket sales in both directions between the two Mekong Region cities. Emirates will be the only airline with a direct service between these two cities.

All services on the Dubai-Yangon-Phnom Penh route will offer two classes of travel – business and economy.

Tickets can be booked online through www.emirates.com  or authorised travel agents.
