India-Cambodia direct flights to start from June 16

As per the latest development, direct flights will soon be available between India and Cambodia. In a significant development aimed at boosting tourism and connectivity between India and Cambodia, these flights will start flying directly between the two nations starting June 16.

This initiative, facilitated by Cambodia’s Angkor Air, will facilitate travel options for those travelling from India to Cambodia, and likewise, those visiting India from Cambodia.

Cambodia Angkor Air, the national flag carrier of Cambodia, recently announced the commencement of direct flight services between Cambodia and India, starting June 16. If reports are to go by, these flights will operate four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, connecting Phnom Penh and New Delhi.

Referring to this, Cambodian Ambassador Kuong Koy expressed his satisfaction with this milestone, attributing it to the concerted efforts of leaders from both countries, particularly the civil aviation ministers. He described the development as ‘a dream come true,’ adding that this initiative will have numerous benefits, including increased connectivity in promoting tourism, given Cambodia’s rich heritage of Hindu and Buddhist temples.

The introduction of this new direct flight service is expected to significantly boost tourist traffic between the two countries and facilitate easier travel for those seeking medical tourism in India, known for its comparatively lower treatment costs.

Home to Angkor Wat, and recognised as the world’s largest religious structure, Cambodia is all about rich cultural heritage dating back to the early 12th century when the temple was originally dedicated to the Hindu deity Vishnu, and much more.

Seila Hul, under secretary of state for Cambodia’s Ministry of Tourism, anticipated a surge in Indian tourists visiting Cambodia, citing the positive impact of these direct flights on bilateral tourism. Chhay Sivlin, President of Cambodia’s Tourism Association, echoed this sentiment, highlighting the cultural similarities between India and Cambodia, particularly in Hinduism.

With flights scheduled four times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday) between Phnom Penh and New Delhi, these direct air links will offer convenient options for travellers seeking to explore the vibrant cultures and attractions of both nations.
