Cambodia airlines to suffers from low Chinese inflow

    Despite a rising number of passenger arrivals to Cambodia’s international airports, along with new flight routes and destinations, the country’s airline sector appears to be in disarray, Khmer Times reports.

    Industry sources told the news outlet that there have been frequently canceled or delayed flights, which is due in part to waning passenger numbers, and safety concerns of some of the aircraft.

    The online gaming ban in Cambodia, which came into effect in January – led to a massive outflow of Chinese workers from the country last year. 

    Almost 40 airlines are scheduled to operate flights to Cambodia during the winter season, with the bulk of airlines from China. 

    Airlines will now need to brace themselves for the impact of the coronavirus, which has caused passengers to cancel flights or delay their trips to and from China.
