Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates Airline, further strengthened its extensive route network with the launch of a weekly freighter service to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, starting Wednesday.
The new freighter service to Cambodia’s capital is the carrier’s 53rd destination in its worldwide freighter network and the 13th in the Far East.
From Phnom Penh, cargo will be transported via a trucking network to reach other cities and regions in Cambodia.
“Cambodia’s air cargo market is growing at a robust rate with Europe and the United States being key export markets. Establishing a presence in this market will position Emirates SkyCargo to benefit from the healthy growth potential. Our strong route network and Dubai’s location as a global cargo hub mean that we can connect our customers in Asia to 150 destinations, including 42 gateways in Europe, 14 gateways in North America and 27 gateways in Africa,” said Hiran Perera, Senior Vice President, Emirates SkyCargo.
According to Cambodia Airports, which manages the country’s three international airports, the volume of air freight shipments to and from Cambodia increased 14 per cent in 2015 to 38,065 tonnes.
