Plans for National Airline

Government officials have been in talks with the private sector regarding the creation

of a new national airline. Royal Air Cambodge, the country's previous national carrier,

folded in 2001 after massive losses. Prime Minister Hun Sen warned that Cambodia

could not afford to "let this carrier end up like Royal Air Cambodge",

and said that the government was in talks with potentially suitable airlines. Tourism

officials predict that 2007 will continue to see double digit growth in the number

of tourists arrivals.
