Thong Khon, Cambodia's Minister of Tourism, has urged Sky Angkor Airlines to prepare to restore tourist-passenger flights as soon as the Royal Government of Cambodia is ready to reopen "safe" international tourism.

On September 21, 2021, the Minister of Tourism presented his statements during a meeting with Sky Angkor Airlines.


“In the near future, the Royal Government of Cambodia has been planning to reopen international tourists (vaccinated tourists) in compliance with the safety tourism mechanism,” the Minister said.


Prime Minister Hun Sen will officially proclaim the launch of international "safe tourism" in the near future, according to the Minister.

The Minister explained the Cambodian government's plans for overseas tourists.


Tourists will only be required to quarantine for 7 days at a safe tourist area where COVID-19 is not present.

As a result, the Minister authorized Sky Angkor Airlines to be prepared to bring tourists and international travelers to Cambodia again.


The Royal Government of Cambodia, according to the Minister, has developed a "roadmap on the restoration and promotion of tourism in Cambodia during and after the COVID-19 crisis" as well as a master plan for tourism development in the provinces of Siem Reap and Mondulkiri.

According to him, the Ministry of Tourism has already created a strategic plan document for the opening of safe tourism in the COVID-19 phase, which it has also presented to the Royal Government for assessment and approval.


After Prime Minister Hun Sen stated his aim to restore safe tourism in Cambodia, Sky Angkor Airlines' CEO returned to the Republic of Korea to work with tour firms in Korea and China to promote tourists to visit Cambodia, according to Koo Taeoh, General Manager of Sky Angkor Airlines.


The itinerary of Sky Angkor Airlines offers direct flights from Cambodia to numerous Chinese regions, as well as Vietnam, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and India, as well as domestic flights between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap and Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville.
