The State Secretariat of Civil Aviation (SSCA) confirmed Tuesday that Siem Reap Airways has met local aviation regulations and will be allowed to take over domestic routes currently run by parent firm Bangkok Airways. In a statement to “clarify” reports in the press, the SCAA also said the decision to not renew an interim licence allowing the Thai-based airline to fly between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap was not politically motivated. As first reported in the Post, Bangkok Airways will not be allowed to continue flying domestic routes after the current agreement expires on October 25.
