Emirates Airline is adding service to Phnom Penh in Cambodia from July 1 this year. The flight will operates via Yangon, Myanmar.
The outbound flight EK388 will Depart Dubai at 0915hrs, and will arrive in Yangon at 1725hrs. It will then depart Yangon at 1855hrs, before arriving at Phnom Penh at 2125hrs.
Returning flight EK389 will depart Phnom Penh at 2310hrs, and will arrive in Dubai at 0540hrs the next day, again operating via Yangon.
On the same day Emirates will introduce a direct, non-stop route between Dubai and Hanoi. The current Hanoi service operates via Yangon.
Emirates has carriage rights from Yangon to Phnom Penh and vice versa. Emirates will be the only airline with a direct service between these two cities.
All services between Dubai and Phnom Penh will offer two classes of travel – Business and Economy.
There are still new route opportunities for Emirates in Asia and I expect to see further growth for the airline in this region. Macau and Chiang Mai are both obvious opportunities.
