Cambodia Bayon AirlinesCambodia Bayon Airlines, a newcomer to Cambodia’s crowded domestic aviation scene, plans to operate domestic flights by the end of this year.

The airline vice president, Taing Chun Leang, told local media that the airline is waiting for its air operations certificate (AOC) to be approved by the Secretary of State Secretariat of Civil Aviation of Cambodia.

In addition, the airline plans to invest $100 million over the coming months to purchase two Modern Ark 60 (MA 60) aircraft – a turboprop-powered aircraft made by China’s Xi’an Aircraft Industrial Corporation – before launching regular domestic flights later this year.

He said: “We plan to start flights this December. This is the first company in Cambodia that will own its own aircraft, rather than leasing,” he said, adding that it plans acquire five aircraft by the end of 2015.

Currently, only Cambodia Angkor Air and the little-known Siem Reap-based operator, Skywings Asia Airlines, have valid AOCs, according to State Secretariat of Civil Aviation of Cambodia general director Keo Sivorn.
