Shenzhen carrier starts daily route from capital

China-based Shenzhen Airlines has launched another daily flight between Phnom Penh and China’s southeastern Shenzhen province, bringing the total number of regular flights it offers between the two countries to seven.

The airline, which focuses on servicing business-class passengers, has seen significant traffic growth to the Kingdom this year, with over 1 million Chinese passengers entering Cambodia. In a statement, Eric Delobel, CEO of Cambodia Airports, said the development further emphasises the connectivity between Cambodia and China.

“Most of China’s major cities have established air links with our airports and that has been beneficial to passengers, as they have a full array of travel options with more destinations, airlines, and frequencies,” he said, adding that route development efforts have attracted more Chinese passengers to bolster the tourism sector.
