On December 17, a flight from Singapore to Siem Reap landed safely at Siem Reap International Airport, the gateway to Angkor Wat, for the first time in about 20 months after being suspended since March 2020 due to Covid-19.

Siem Reap International Airport is one of the three international airports operating in Cambodia. From now on, daily flights will be operated between Singapore and Siem Reap, and Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights are scheduled to operate four times a week.

It is reported that eligible travelers will be able to enter Singapore without quarantine on this flight.

This reopening is a major step in the recovery of Siem Reap’s tourism industry.

As Cambodia looks to return to its former glory, foreign companies are entering the country one after another.
