Air France plans to resume direct flights from Paris to Phnom Penh for the first time in 35 years. The proposed move has the support from both the French ambassador and Prime Minister, Hun Sen.
Currently, visitors from Europe have to take connecting flights to Phnom Penh from Thailand, Malaysia or Vietnam which can be time-consuming and expensive.
European tourists and entrepreneurs will be pleased to hear this news as it will mean a reduction in travel time. It will also encourage more tourists from Europe to visit Cambodia.
