Cambodian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation HE Prak Sokhonn led a senior government delegation to the Indonesian capital Jakarta last Friday morning, having boarded a special Cambodia Airways flight at Phnom Penh International Airport.
The representatives of the management team and staff of Cambodia Airways warmly welcomed the distinguished passengers and presented exquisite gifts to guests at the airport, with the high-level contingent set to join Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen at Saturday’s ASEAN Leaders Meeting.
The special flight took off from Phnom Penh International Airport at 8am for an approximately three-hour flight. It landed smoothly at Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport at the scheduled local time of 11:00 am, with the roar of engines symbolizing Cambodia Airways having successfully completed yet another significant assignment.
This is the first time this year that Cambodia Airways has been designated with providing air transport services for a senior Cambodian government delegation.
The current Covid-19 situation in many countries remains severe, with stricter lockdown measures having also been implemented in Phnom Penh, providing Cambodia Airways with unprecedented logistical difficulties to overcome.
Having been entrusted by the government with such an important role, Cambodia Airways quickly began deployment, implementing staff commuting plans during the city lockdown to ensure every department involved could make prompt arrangements.
The flight was nevertheless completed with the highest standards of quality and professionalism, meeting the expectations of all sides.
Cambodia Airways has successfully fulfilled similar commitments in the past – having provided dedicated charter flights for state-level officials as requested by the Cambodian government, with important operations to Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and East Timor.
All of the previous air transport services were highly praised by the government, and it was again a privilege and an honor for Cambodia Airways to undertake this assignment and fly the high-level government delegation to Jakarta to attend the ASEAN Leaders Meeting.
Being the first local Cambodian airline to carry a government delegation to an ASEAN Leaders Meeting, it once again demonstrates that Cambodia Airways has been well-recognized for its capabilities and reliability in carrying out such arrangements.
Always dedicated to providing transportation of the highest standards, Cambodia Airways has accumulated invaluable experience in providing top-quality services for such governmental travel.
Cambodia Airways always upholds the concept of best serving Cambodia's citizens and the government, with a mission to promote cultural exchanges between Cambodia and the world – to bridge the Kingdom with the rest of the globe.
Unwavering from start to finish, Cambodia Airways constantly strives for the highest professional standards in realizing its vision of being the Kingdom's flagship carrier.
