Philippines to Kingdom of Cambodia, now Just a Flight Away

Previously, Filipino travelers had to go to major Southeast Asian cities like Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, and Singapore to get flights to Siem Reap, the gateway to Cambodia‘s Angkor.

A UNESCO world heritage site, Angkor is a region in Cambodia where over a thousand temples in ruins can be found. One of these temples is the magnificent Angkor Wat, said to be the world’s largest single religious monument.

Now, travelers need not be turned off by the thought of connecting flights and long travel hours to visit the world-famous Angkor Wat.

The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) recently approved direct flights from the Philippines to Cambodia, known for one of the most important archeological sites in Southeast Asia.

CAB granted Cebu Pacific five frequencies for the Manila-Cambodia route, while ZestAir got two frequencies.

Airphil Express, the budget carrier of Philippine Airlines, and AirAsia Philippines Inc. each received seven frequencies for the Clark-Cambodia route. One frequency is equivalent to a once-a-week flight.
