Prior to moving to Phnom Penh to be Cambodia country manager, Chang was based in the airline’s headquarters in Seoul and in charge of marketing for Europe and Southeast Asia. Cambodia is an important business and leisure market for Korean Air, which has a daily flight between Seoul Incheon and Phnom Penh. According to Cambodia’s Ministry of Tourism, South Korea is ranked sixth in terms of international arrivals into Cambodia. January-July there were 101,728 arrivals from South Korea.

“There is a good mix of leisure and business traffic between Cambodia and South Korea,” says Chang. “Passengers arriving into Seoul Incheon can also seamlessly connect to our expansive network that includes direct flights to 13 destinations in North America such as Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Seattle, Chicago, Dallas, Toronto and San Francisco.”

Business travel between South Korea and Cambodia is partly driven by the fact there are around 300 South Korean companies operating in Cambodia in various sectors such as manufacturing, construction and finance.
