Emirates has resumed daily service with its Boeing 777-300ER to Phnom Penh via Singapore Changi as part of its continued rebuilding network.

Emirates has officially recommenced daily scheduled flights between Dubai and Phnom Penh via Singapore Changi.

As a result of the service resumption, Emirates has grown its Far East network to 21 points. Additionally, thanks to the triangular route, Singapore Changi now sees four daily flights from Dubai International.

Emirates will deploy its Boeing 777-300ER on the service, with the outbound flight from Dubai operating as EK348. The first flight back arrived on May 1, 2024, and was greeted by several leading Emirates delegates and media.

Cambodia’s rich cultural heritage and growing economy make it an attractive destination for leisure and business travel. We’re excited for this unique gateway to once again join our already extensive Far East network. Through the linked services between Singapore and Phnom Penh, we’re also able to support the trade and business movements between the two regional hubs and facilitate the convenient shipment of imports and exports between Singapore, Cambodia and the UAE, as well as other markets in our global network.

Emirates applauded those of Cambondia who made the return for Emirates possible. While Emirates’ network grows, the overall positives are felt for Phnom Penh International Airport.

This airport saw its connectivity decimated during the global pandemic, and with Emirates resuming service, the rebuild is well and truly on. Additionally, those leaving Phnom Penh aboard an Emirates flight will have access to Emirates’ staggering network from Singapore and Dubai.

Breaking Down The Flights

Flight EK348 is scheduled to depart Dubai at 0230, with an arrival in Singapore at 1405. After a short layover in Singapore, the flight departs for Phnom Penh at 1535, with an arrival scheduled for 1635.

The returning flight, operating as EK349, leaves Phnom Penh at 2050 and arrives in Singapore at 2350. The last leg of the flight departs Changi the following morning at 0140 and arrives in Dubai at 0455. All times are local.

A Benefit To Freight

Aside from focusing on passenger services, Emirates highlights the important connectivity between Cambodia and the world for Emirates SkyCargo.

Across the last two years, the cargo division has handled 2,420 tonnes of freight and has acted as a road feeder service with interline partnerships across Asia.

Expanding passenger flights now will enhance connectivity options and provide quicker trade routes towards markets across North America and Europe.
