MANILA – Passengers of the Philippines will have more options going to Cambodia as flag carrier Philippine Airlines will mount additional flights from Manila beginning September 1.

According to the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), PAL is the only carrier that has a direct flight to Cambodia.

From the current four times a week schedule, five weekly flights between the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and Phnom Penh will be offered.

PAL is increasing its flight frequencies between Manila and Phnom Penh due to travel demand between the two capital cities, spokesperson Cielo Villaluna told the Philippine News Agency Tuesday night.

"We are also serving travelers between Phnom Penh and cities in the United States, Australia, Japan, and in other countries in the PAL's network. Manila is a convenient connecting hub for (the passengers)," she said.

Starting September 1, the flight from Manila to Cambodia will be offered every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 9:50 p.m.

From September 2, the services from Cambodia to Manila will be at 12:45 a.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. (PNA)
