Cambodia Airways praised for Myanmar medical equipment flights

Minister of Health Mam Bun Heng – representing Prime Minister Hun Sen – on November 26 led a 13-member Cambodian delegation to Myanmar to distribute medical supplies.

A VIP Cambodia Airways flight from Phnom Penh International Airport landed in Myanmar capital Naypyidaw to deliver the donations. Some 2.2 million items, including face masks, protective suits, eye protection and other medical equipment, were loaded onto three aircraft.

Jiang Yifei, the managing director of Cambodia Airways, was honoured to meet General Dr Mao Havannall, minister in charge of the Secretariat of State for Civil Aviation, on November 27.

Jiang received a letter of appreciation from the Royal Government of Cambodia for sponsoring the three humanitarian flights to transport the medical equipment as part of the fight against Covid-19. The supplies were a gift from the government of Cambodia to Myanmar.

Havannall conveyed his gratitude, saying that Prime Minister Hun Sen had also expressed high praise for Cambodia Airways’ contributions to the country.

He added that with the civil aviation industry having been hit hard by the global pandemic, the Secretariat of State for Civil Aviation (SSCA) and airlines needed to work together to overcome challenges.

Jiang said the intention of Cambodia Airways was always to become the flagship of the Kingdom, serving the people and government of Cambodia.

"Cambodia Airways is very grateful for the supports and helps of the government. The airline is keen to join hands with the SSCA to create a bright future for the Kingdom's civil aviation industry," Jiang said.
