Mekong Airlines plans to resume flights within Cambodia on September 26, reported
the Star newspaper in Kuala Lumpur. The airline canceled flights after operating
for only three-months because of a drop in passenger numbers during the Severe Acute
Respiratory Syndrome epidemic. The company was re-launched on September 2 under new
management with $15 million from Malaysian and Cambodian investors. A two-plane fleet
will shuttle passengers between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh until the airline can increase
its capacity this October.
