MAS up their flights

WHEN flight MH 762 touched down at Phnom Penh International Airport on November 3 at 15:59, it marked a new milestone in the partnership between the airport and the Malaysian carrier.

With the addition of two new weekly flights to its scheduled daily operations between Kuala Lumpur and Phnom Penh, Malaysian Airlines is showing its confidence in the traffic growth potential between the countries.

Passengers on board the B737-800 (166 seats) were received and greeted by representatives from both SCA and  Malaysia Airlines.

The additional flights operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with arrival time at 16:10 and departure time at 17:10

Mr Nicolas Deviller, CEO of SCA, the developer and operator of Cambodia’s international airports, said: “Malaysia Airlines is the first airline that started operating at Phnom Penh International Airport when the country just reopened to the world in 1992. We have built very strong relationships since then and they keep on growing. This is significant evidence of them.”

Mr Abdul Karim Md Isa (Area Manager Cambodia) at Malaysia Airlines, said the growing market demand for the route had prompted the airline to introduce additional frequency from seven to nine weekly flights.

Malaysia Airlines also operates three weekly flights between Siem Reap and Kuala Lumpur on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
