Low-cost carrier Citilink, a subsidiary of national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, will roll out a new direct flight connecting Jakarta and Phnom Penh.
The new route is set to launch in June and will be available three times a week.
Using the Airbus A320 with 180 seats, the initial flight will depart from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Banten.
Thong Khon, Cambodia’s minister of tourism, expressed his appreciation towards Indonesia support and participation by providing direct flight service.
It is expected to boost bilateral tourism, trade, and investment for both countries.
In 2018, around 2 million Cambodians traveled abroad and more than 8,000 visited Indonesia, while over 55,000 Indonesians flew to Cambodia.
Additionally, the new route will be able to facilitate the more than 3,500 Indonesians currently living in Cambodia
