Bayon Air welcomes first aircraft

Cambodia Bayon Airlines received its first aircraft on Monday, aviation industry news outlet World Civil Aviation Resource Net reported.

The company’s first Chinese-made Modern Ark 60 (MA60) aircraft arrived at Phnom Penh International Airport after receiving approval from aviation authorities on December 1.

“We have done everything here and just can’t wait to welcome your arrival. Safe flight dear beloved!” Bayon Air wrote on its Facebook page on Monday.

Bayon Air purchased 20 MA60 aircraft at a cost of $450 million from state-owned Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) on August 22. Bayon Air is a subsidiary of Bayon Holding Limited, which is wholly owned by AVIC and China Easter Air’s Joy Air – an airline based in China’s Shaanxi Province.

The Phnom Penh-based airline aims to launch thrice-weekly domestic flights to Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, and later plans to expand its fleet to include Airbus A320 aircraft and flights to China.
