Civil Aviation Sector Expects More Growth This Year

The Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) shared today a new perspective of the Cambodian civil aviation.

According to CAPA's new report, seven airlines and more � start-ups and fleet proliferating � will come to Cambodia in 2018.

Cambodia's aviation sector is growing rapidly, leading to a rapid expansion of the Cambodian fleet. There are now seven airlines in Cambodia, together operating a combined fleet of 30 aircraft, compared to two airlines operating seven aircraft four years ago, it underlined.

At least three new airlines are planning to launch operations in 2018, while several of the existing airlines are pursuing further fleet expansion. The Cambodian fleet will likely reach 40 aircraft by the end of 2018, it added.

JC International Airlines, an ambitious start-up which began operations less than a year ago, could become the largest airline in Cambodia by the end of 2018, based on fleet size, said the same source, stressing that Cambodia Angkor Air and Sky Angkor Air are now the largest local airlines and are also the most established.
