Qatar Airways to Fly to Cambodia

Qatar Airways
Qatar Airways will launch daily scheduled flights to the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh from early next year to further boost its Asia Pacific network.

The Doha-based airline will be the only Middle Eastern carrier to operate into Cambodia with services due to start on February 20.

Phnom Penh will be Qatar Airways’ latest destination in Asia, which now represents around 30 per cent of the carrier’s 119-strong network of global cities. Its Asian coverage includes diverse business and leisure cities such as Hong Kong, Hanoi, Osaka, Tokyo, Perth, Beijing, Shanghai, Melbourne, Perth, Delhi, Mumbai, Karachi and Goa.

Phnom Penh will also be Qatar Airways’ 11th gateway in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), following on from successful operations to Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Bali, Ho Chi Minh City, Jakarta, Hanoi, Singapore, Manila, Phuket and Yangon.

Cambodia attracts millions of tourists and business travellers every year visiting historic attractions such as the majestic Angkor Wat in Siem Reap and the premier beach island resort of Sihanoukville – both within easy reach of the fabulous city of Phnom Penh.

Located on the banks of the Mekong River and bordered by Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, Phnom Penh is Cambodia’s largest city and the country’s economic, cultural and political centre.

Qatar Airways will operate to Phnom Penh International Airport which is currently undergoing expansion to cater for increased capacity to handle five million passengers a year by 2017 – more than double the current amount.
