Direct flights between Cambodia and Indonesia have officially launched, and with this Cambodia expects to attract more tourists from the world’s largest Islamic country.
Direct flights between Jakarta and Phnom Penh will be operated three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays by Citilink, a subsidiary of Indonesia’s Garuda Airlines.
Pacific Asia Travel Association president, Thourn Sinan, said that in the past Cambodia did not receive many Indonesian visitors due to a lack of direct flights. He said the flights will attract more tourists and investors to the Kingdom of Cambodia.
This year, Cambodia expects to receive about 6.7 million international tourists, with over seven million visitors by next year, and 15 million by 2030.
