According to Sin Chanserivutha, undersecretary of state for civil aviation, as of the end of December 2022, “27 international airlines have resumed flying into and out of Cambodia.”
“We get more than 2 million passengers in 2022, an increase of around 900 percent compared to the same period in 2021,” Chanserivutha added.
According to the Civil Aviation spokeswoman, there were around 300,000 flights in Cambodia during that time period, up more than 260 percent from the same time in 2021.
According to him, in 2023 there will be over 4 million passengers flying, and there will be almost 300,000 flights per day.
It is anticipated that the route between China and Cambodia will be able to replace one of the current major routes.
China-Cambodia flights have advanced significantly as of January 2023. There will be 15 flights by Cambodian Airlines to China and 15 flights by China Airlines to Cambodia. We had 30 flights between China and Cambodia per week (a quota imposed by the Chinese side).
“There are six Chinese airlines flying into and out of Cambodia from seven destinations,” he continued.
