Three new airlines for Cambodia in 2018

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Tue Feb 27, 2018 12:13 pm

Three new airlines set to launch this year in Cambodia
27 February 2018
Cambodia looks set to add three new airlines this year to bring the total number of operating carriers to 10, an unsustainable number in the long term, according to research released today by the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA).

Cambodia Airways, China-backed KC International Airline and Thai-backed Air Siem Reap plan to enter the market. All three companies are in the process of applying for their air operating certificates in Cambodia.

Cambodia’s aviation sector has seen rapid growth in recent years, going from two airlines flying seven planes in 2013 to its current fleet of seven airlines flying 30 planes. CAPA predicts there will be 45 planes by the end of the year.

“Cambodia’s fleet will continue to expand rapidly over the next few years as passenger traffic grows rapidly, driven to a large extent by inbound demand from China,” the report says.

But given Cambodia’s relatively small market, the report also warns that “it is hard to imagine a market the size of Cambodia supporting more than five airlines – let alone 10 – over the long run.”

Local outfits Sky Angkor Air and Cambodia Angkor Air still have the most planes operating in the country, but JC International, a China-backed airline that launched in March last year, "will likely have more capacity by the end of 2018 as it continues to expand its fleet rapidly," according to the report.

small market = low profits or even loss = cut corners on maintenance = accident soon, :stir:

FlightRadar24 app shows within a 24 hour period 18 departures and arrivals today, 6 months ago it was 6 flights a day... 3 years ago 0 at Sihanoukville Airport.
I have though seen flights from previous days listed as cancelled.

i have been cancelled many times from shv to hcm, these fuckers are just trying their luck to see if they could fill an ATR72 fm shv to hcm, or else they just cancel and push all the passengers who hv booked to fly fm pp to hcm or even worst shv to sr to hcm with a couple hours layover, fuckers, now a days i just book pp to hcm to save myself the hassle of facing cancellation, even at pp to hcm if they cant fill the flight they woud cancel and push all together to a later flight to fill up a plane, motherfuckers

Most of these new start-ups are relying on the foreign sectors for profit. It's just a condition of their AOC that they operate domestically. It's a win for the consumer for sure. The only one I wouldn't fly is Bayon. CAA with their frequent cxl and delays with no notification, definite candidate for worst airline of the decade award.
