JC (Cambodia) International Airlines has launched direct services from Phnom Penh and Siem Reap to Hong Kong and appointed Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT) as its terminal operator there.
JC International, which started operations in March this year, serves the two Cambodian cities twice weekly with its Airbus A320 aircraft.
AAT is also Hong Kong cargo terminal operator for flag carrier Cambodia Angkor Air’s new service to Hong Kong.
Established in 2009, the airline operates twice weekly between Siem Reap and Hong Kong using A320 aircraft.
General manager cargo for Cambodia Angkor Air, Trinh Hong Minh, said: “We sincerely welcome the cooperation between Cambodia Angkor Air and AAT. We look forward to working smoothly and fruitfully with AAT for cargo transportation in the future.”
AAT general manager, Kuah Boon Kiam, added that manufacturing was increasingly important to the Cambodian economy, particularly textiles and garments. He said: “The increase in direct air links will boost trade opportunities between Cambodia and China via the gateway of Hong Kong.”
