Business Traveller (Middle East) - - Upfront -

EMI­RATES AIMS TO start daily Yan­gon-Ph­nom Penh ser­vices on B777-300ER air­craft from July 1, sub­ject to govern­ment ap­provals. From the same date, Yan­gon will be delinked from Hanoi, and the lat­ter will be served di­rectly from Dubai. Emi­rates said the changes will en­able it to tap into “de­vel­op­ing Indo-Chi­nese markets” and it will be the only car­rier be­tween Yan­gon and Ph­nom Penh – should it man­age to se­cure the fifth free­dom ap­provals.

It would mark its se­cond fifth free­dom ser­vice in 2017 with DubaiAthens-New York set to launch on March 12, also on B777-300ERs.

Gov­ern­ments con­tinue to weigh up the eco­nomic ben­e­fits that new Emi­rates flights pro­vide with the need to sup­port their own avi­a­tion in­ter­ests. Kenyan au­thor­i­ties, for ex­am­ple, re­cently blocked re­quests for a third daily flight to Nairobi. an­niver­sary in Poland by op­er­at­ing a ‘one off’ A380 to War­saw Chopin Air­port.
