Emirates adds new Dubai to Phnom Penh route to network

Emirates B777Middle Eastern airline Emirates has just inaugurated a connecting route to two Southeast Asia capital cities. The new service linking Dubai to Yangon in Myanmar and Phnom Penh in Cambodia launched on 1 July.

The service provides convenient connections for travellers from locations including the UK, France and Germany as departure times are scheduled to coincide with the arrivals of Emirates flights from these countries. The new route means Emirates flights from Dubai to Hanoi no longer stop in Yangon.

Daily flights depart Dubai at 09:15 local time. This allows travellers to board night flights from the likes of London and Frankfurt. The onward Dubai service lands in Yangon at 17:25. There is a 90-minute layover here and arrival time in Phnom Penh is 21:25 South Asian standard time.

The return service leaves Phnom Penh at 23:10 and calls back in Yangon before proceeding to Dubai with a scheduled arrival time there of 05:40. The route between Yangon and Phnom Penh is the only direct flight link between the two.

Prior to the inauguration of the Emirates service, people wishing to travel between these two cities had to transit in the Thai capital of Bangkok. National tourism authorities in Myanmar and Cambodia are currently cobbling together a promotion campaign to jointly market their historic temples.

The ‘two countries, one destination’ marketing campaign will officially launch next year. It will focus on highlighting the attractions of Myanmar’s Bagan Archaeological Zone and the Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia.
