Cambodia Airlines rumoured to have abandoned startup plans

Cambodia Airlines majority shareholder, the Royal Group of Cambodia, has rejected reports that all plans for the airline startup have been dropped.

Royal Group CFO Mark Hanna said: “It’s definitely not abandoned. We’re going through the process of getting AOC approval.”

However, Keo Sivorn, the director general of the Cambodian State Secretariat for Civil Aviation (SSCA) as stated that neither firm involved in the Cambodia Airlines project had initiated the startup’s certification process.

Sivorn said: “Cambodia Airlines’ AOC is not in the process because we do not know if the two partners even still want to continue or not. It depends on them and we are still waiting.”

Cambodia Airlines originally planned to commence services in 2012, only for that date to be postponed to March, and then to October 2013.

Delays were blamed on civil unrest in Cambodia following a disputed national election in July 2013.
