Qatar Airways to resume Phnom Penh flights in October


Qatar Airways announced the resumption of its Phnom Penh flights this year.

While talking at the opening day of the ITB Berlin 2023, the world’s largest international travel and tourism trade show, Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker said it would resume flights to 11 destinations, including Phnom Penh, Beijing, Birmingham, Buenos Aires, Casablanca, Davao, Marrakesh, Nice, Osaka, Ras Al-Khaimah, and Tokyo Haneda.

The Phnom Penh flights are expected to commence operations from October 29 onwards, an airline industry source told Khmer Times yesterday.

The airline operated its last flight to Phnom Penh in April 2020.

Qatar Airways started its daily flights to Phnom Phenh in February 2013 and thus became the first Middle Eastern airline operating direct flights to the Kingdom.

Its flight QR602 received a traditional water salute followed by a grand ceremony at the Phonm Penh International Airport.

Qatar Airways started direct flights to the Kingdom in a bid to connect the country with scores of destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, North America and South America.

Cambodia has welcomed the resumption of China Eastern Airlines flights to its Siem Reap cultural province, the country’s Ministry of Tourism said in a press statement on Saturday.
