Cambodia Angkor Air is a joint venture between the Cambodian government and Vietnam Airlines.

Cambodia Angkor Air, the country’s flag carrier, signed an agreement with aircraft leasing company BOC Aviation Ltd yesterday to dry lease two Airbus 320s.

The two aircrafts, set to be delivered by the end of the year, will be acquired on a 15-year dry lease.

Tekreth Samrach, chairman of Cambodia Angkor Air, said the airline currently operates a fleet of seven aircraft, comprising four A321s and three ATR 72s. He said the airline plans to increase its fleet size to up to 12 planes by 2020.

“We have committed to using the [two] new A320 aircraft . . . and we will need to acquire even more new aircraft in the future to fly to Japan or India,” he said.
