Cambodia Post on Saturday notified customers that it has suspended mail to all countries due to the spread of Covid-19, which has interrupted air transportation almost completely. The post office did not confirm when it will resume International services again.
Cambodia Post director-general Ork Bora said: “Due to Covid-19, flights via Thai Airways, Dragon Air, Malay Air, and ANA air have been suspended until April 30 when the carriers will provide further information.
“It is not certain when they will continue operating again. Cambodia Post’s mail is delivered through the four flights. This suspension is for international mail only and we are open as normal for local services such as money transfers.”
Cambodia Post said its mission is based on the autonomous implementation of business administration and finance in line with government policy.
The goals are to push for socio-economic growth, contribute to poverty reduction and enhance the lives of employees by continuing to implement deep reform programmes in both the administrative and financial structures.
“Cambodia Post aims to serve all types of domestic and international postal service with no discrimination in terms of race, colour, political or religious affiliation with the mission and duty to receive, collect, ship and distribute all types of mailings, local and international mail and express mail,” it said.
State Secretariat of Civil Aviation spokesperson Sin Chansereyvutha said at a press conference on April 16 that from mid-February until mid-April, the number of tourists travelling by air had dropped by more than 90 per cent.
“For domestic aviation, we haven’t analysed it because we are in a transitional period. I have contacted the airlines and they still have no precise information yet. However, we can estimate the decrease in the number of international passengers from February until mid-April,” he said.
