Air France returns to Cambodia

AIR France will resume its direct Paris-Phnom Penh flight via Bangkok from March 27 next year. It last operated flights through Cambodia in 1974.

Operating with three flights per week, the airline will initially utilise an Airbus A340 with 275 seats - 30 seats in Business, 21 in Premium Voyageur and 224 in Voyageur Economy, and will subsequently deploy the 309-seat Boeing B777-200.

Société Concessionnaire des Aéroports (SCA) said the move resulted from its breakthrough talks with Air France and Cambodia's State Secretary for Civil Aviation.

SCA develops and operates Cambodia's three international airports in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville. Its CEO Nicolas Deviller said: "The return of Air France is a testament of confidence in the traffic growth potential between France and Cambodia."

About 70,000 French national passengers were expected to be travelling through Cambodian airports this year, he added.

Along with Air France's service, Phnom Penh International Airport will be served by 410 flights per week, connecting with 22 destinations, next year.
