phnom penh becomes emirates’ newest indochina connection

On 1 July 2017, Emirates will commence a daily Dubai-Phnom Penh service via Yangon, becoming the first airline to offer a connection between Yangon and Phnom Penh.


Operated with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a two-class configuration, the departure time of flight EK388 from Dubai seamlessly connects with several European services such as Paris, London and Frankfurt. The return flight EK389 will depart Phnom Penh at 21:10 and will arrive in Dubai at 5:40 the next morning after a short stop in Yangon.


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.


The popularity of Cambodia as a destination for UK visitors has grown hugely in recent years. Visitor numbers from the UK to Cambodia more than doubled between 2006 and 2015 and increased by 16% between 2014 and 2015.
