Cambodia urges Indonesia to resume direct flights


Cambodia has urged Indonesia to resume direct flight connection with Cambodia to facilitate mutual vaccination tourism movement in the near future.

Sok Sangvar, Undersecretary of State at the Ministry of Tourism who represented Tourism Minister at a Fam trip themed “Exploring the Land of Sunda” at the Embassy of Indonesia to Phnom Penh last weekend, expressed this to Indonesian Ambassador Sudirman Haseng.

In June 2019, Citylink, a subsidiary mounted three times a week flights between Jakarta and Phnom Penh but the flights were halted in April 2020 due to COVID-19 and poor load factors.

Speaking on the opening ceremony of the Fam trip, Ambassador Sudirman spoke highly of Cambodia’s effort in fighting against COVID-19, especially in building community immunity.

He also thanked the Government of Cambodia for vaccinating against COVID-19 to the Indonesian people in Cambodia.

The Fam trip was organized to promote the good collaboration between the two nations in diplomacy, trade, tourism, and beyond. Lim Nary – AKP
