Cambodia Angkor Air Launches Direct Flights between Phnom Penh and New Delhi

Cambodia Angkor Air Co. Ltd, the country’s national flag carrier, has launched direct flights between Cambodia’s lively city, Phnom Penh, and India’s busy metropolis, New Delhi. This pioneering service, scheduled to fly four times per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday) under flight number K6760/K6761, marks the first direct connection between these two countries, ushering in a new era of seamless air travel.

Cambodia Angkor Air’s historic debut of direct flights during the ‘Cambodia-India Cultural Tourism Year’ of 2024 marks a significant step toward increasing economic, cultural, and tourist exchange between the two countries.

“It’s my honour to deepen the traditional friendship between India and Cambodia through our historic direct service. We commit to warmly show ‘Khmer Smile’, providing safe and comfortable journeys; with plans to open new routes connecting Siem Reap to Delhi and Phnom Penh to other cities in India soon,” says Dr. David Yuhong Zhan, Director of Cambodia Tourism Board (CTB), Vice Chairman and CEO of Cambodia Angkor Air. He also added, “This new route not only meets the growing demand for direct connectivity between Cambodia and India, but also reinforces our dedication to providing passengers with unparalleled service, comfort, and convenience.”

Cambodia’s Ambassador to India highlighted direct flights’ benefits for Indian entrepreneurs, while Cambodia’s Ministry of Tourism invited tourists. Representatives from tourism, civil aviation, and media discussed collaboration opportunities.
