Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

Emi­rates re­cently ex­panded its pres­ence in South­east Asia with the launch of a new daily linked ser­vice from Dubai to Ph­nom Penh (PHN) in Cam­bo­dia, via Yangon in Myan­mar. This new ser­vice, op­er­ated with a Boe­ing 777 air­craft, broad­ens the air­line’s net­work in South­east Asia to 13 cities in eight coun­tries and of­fers more choices and con­ve­nience to pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling be­tween Ph­nom Penh to Dubai and beyond. It also marks the first time since 2014 that Ph­nom Penh and Yangon were con­nected by a di­rect air link, serv­ing in­creas­ing de­mand for travel be­tween the two fast-de­vel­op­ing cities.

Ph­nom Penh, the first des­ti­na­tion within Cam­bo­dia to be served by Emi­rates, is one of the fastest grow­ing economies in South­east Asia. As the coun­try’s largest city and the most im­por­tant com­mer­cial cen­tre, Ph­nom Penh con­trib­utes largely to the coun­try’s eco­nomic growth. Gate­way to the world fa­mous Angkor Wat tem­ple com­plex, Cam­bo­dia of­fers vis­i­tors a rare glimpse of an­cient Asia, and has wit­nessed a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in for­eign tourist ar­rivals.

The air­craft was greeted in Ph­nom

Penh by a tra­di­tional wa­ter can­non salute upon ar­rival. As with all Emi­rates flights, pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling on the Ph­nom Penh ser­vice will be able to take ad­van­tage of the gen­er­ous Emi­rates bag­gage al­lowance of up to 35kg in Econ­omy Class and 40kg in Busi­ness Class.

The VIP del­e­ga­tion on Emi­rates’ in­au­gu­ral flight to Ph­nom Penh was led by Badr Ab­bas, Emi­rates Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent-Com­mer­cial Op­er­a­tions (Far East).
