Cambodia Airways on December 2 once again accepted a government assignment to arrange two special flights to deliver the 1.05 million masks and other medical equipment donated by Prime Minister Hun Sen to assist East Timor's fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
HE Ouch Borith – Minister Attached to the Prime Minister and Secretary of State at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation – led the 12-member Cambodian delegation to East Timor.
This was the second time in less than a week that Cambodia Airways has received an emergency request to arrange special flights to transport safety equipment after successfully completing an important national-level transportation to Myanmar last week.
Properly prepared after swift but careful planning, the two Cambodia Airways special flights took off from Phnom Penh International Airport in the early hours of December 2.
After around five hours, the Cambodia Airways jets landed at President Nicolau Lobato International Airport in Dili, the capital of East Timor, at approximately 9:45, local time, on December 2.All the medical supplies were delivered successfully.
A representative of the government of East Timor warmly welcomed the Cambodian delegation as a handover ceremony was held on site.
With the return of the high-level delegation to Phnom Penh International Airport, Cambodia Airways once again successfully completed the task as assigned by the Cambodian government of transporting medical equipment to combat Covid-19.
Cambodia Airways is glad to undertake such missions and ensure they are completed successfully.
And Cambodia Airways has done this on many previous occasions,providing special flights for state-level officials as requested by the Cambodian government.
The countries visited have included Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand, among others, with the trips having been highly praised by the government.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Cambodia Airways has been called on twice so far to shoulder this responsibility to fulfill the missions. Despite the short preparation time,Cambodia Airways managed to transport its shipments successfully, delivering some 3.3 million masks, medical equipment and other virus prevention materials to Myanmar and East Timor.
Cambodia Airways will always uphold the concept of serving Cambodia's citizens and the government, with a mission to promote exchange between Cambodia and the world--to build a bridge between the Kingdom and the rest of the planet.
Unswerving from the start, Cambodia Airways is working hard to realise its vision of becoming the Kingdom's flagship.
