Air China Operates Their Maiden Beijing–Phnom Penh Direct Flight

It heralded both the start for Air China’s operations in the Kingdom and the start of the direct service between the two capitals. While currently there is a number of airlines which connect cities and destinations in Cambodia and China, there has not been a direct air link between Beijing and Phnom Penh before. The service will be performed three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.

Each week, Phnom Penh airport habitually recieves over 80 flights, Siem Reap airport – from 60 to 70 and Sihanoukville airport handles between 15 and 20 flights; almost half of all flights are from China.
