Cambodia Angkor Air is aiming to grow its fleet to 12 aircraft by 2015.
The carrier wants to increase its fleet year by year based on market demand, and estimates that it will operate five ATR 72 turboprops and seven Airbus A321s within the next three years, says an airline spokesman.
This year, it plans to add an ATR 72, which will allow the airline to increase domestic frequencies and strengthen its routes to Thailand and Vietnam.
It is also studying the possibility of operating widebodies such as Airbus A330s to unspecified countries in Northeast Asia, as a result of the large number of tourists coming to Cambodia, says the spokesman. He did not, however, specify when the carrier is likely to introduce its first widebody aircraft.
On 15 August, the carrier will launch a daily Siem Reap-Guangzhou service, but it has not specified the aircraft type that will be used on the route.
In its later phase of expansion, Cambodia Angkor Air is considering to launch services to South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore. The airline could also launch services to Malaysia and Singapore in 2014, the spokesman adds.
Flightglobal's Ascend Online Fleets database shows that Cambodia Angkor Air operates two ATR 72-500 turboprops and four Airbus A321s. All six aircraft are owned and managed by Vietnam Airlines, which has a 49% stake in Cambodia Angkor Air.
