Having carried out the recent medical missions, Cambodia Airways has gained valuable experience in converting its aircraft to be able to carry cargo, safely loading the supplies in the passenger cabin to accomplish the highly important operations.

While receiving high praise from the government for successfully carrying out the assignments, their completion has also been warmly recognised by the general public.
