Emirates to operate belly service to Phnom Penh in Cambodia


Emirates is to operate a new service to Phnom Penh in Cambodia from 1 July this year using a Boeing 777-300ER.

The launch of daily services from Dubai to Phnom Penh will coincide with the introduction of a direct, non-stop route between Dubai and Hanoi in Vietnam.

This adds to its freighter arm Emirates SkyCargo launching its 13th Far Eastern route with weekly Boeing MD-11 Freighter services to Phnom Penh on 6 April last year.

Emirates says in terms of cargo, garments and clothing are expected to be popular exports from Phnom Penh on the new route.

Cambodia is one of the emerging air cargo markets in Asia and last year new freighter routes were also added by the likes of AirBridgeCargo Airlines, and DHL, and belly routes by All Nippon Airways.
