This strategic move aims to bolster the airline's connectivity across Southeast Asia, facilitating seamless travel to and from Dubai while bridging two key hubs in the region.

Vice President and Chief Commercial Operations Officer of Emirates Airlines, Adnan Kazim, stressed the need to restore daily service to Phnom Penh in order to expand the airline's network throughout Southeast Asia. He thanked the governments of Singapore and Cambodia for their assistance and emphasised the commitment to developing greater commercial connections and increasing chances for tourists to visit a variety of sites.

The trip, which will be conducted by a Boeing 777-300ER with three classes, will take off as EK 348 at 2:30 am and land in Singapore at 2:05 pm. The aircraft will proceed to Phnom Penh, arriving at 4:35 p.m. local time, following a short stopover. EK 349, the return flight, will take off from Phnom Penh at 8:50 p.m. and arrive in Singapore at 11:50 p.m., returning to Dubai at 1:40 a.m. the next day.

Emirates Airlines underscores the convenience of the flight schedules, offering optimal connectivity for passengers travelling to major destinations in Europe, the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, and the United States. With the addition of this route, Emirates will operate four daily flights to Singapore starting May 1, 2024. Additionally, Emirates SkyCargo will provide ample cargo capacity on the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, facilitating the transportation of exports from Phnom Penh, including textiles, medicines, and high-value goods.

There will be 310 economy-class seats, 42 fully flat-bed business-class seats, and eight first-class suites on the voyage. With over 6,500 channels of on-demand programming available, Emirates' well-known in-flight entertainment system, "ice," will be available to passengers.

The economic, industrial, and cultural centre of Cambodia is Phnom Penh, which is situated in the south-central region and draws a sizable number of visitors and businesses. Renowned sites in the city include the National Museum, the Silver Pagoda, and the Royal Palace. By operating daily flights to Phnom Penh and collaborating with Air Cambodia, Emirates Airlines hopes to make it easier for travellers to reach the well-known Angkor Wat heritage monument, which is located close to Siem Reap.
