Five aviation firms which operate flights from Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia to China are allowed to transit the Kingdom and fill up fuel.

According to a letter dated on September 7 by the State Secretariat of Civil Aviation (SSCA) and obtained today by Khmer Times, those firms include Cambodia Angkor Air, Cambodia Airways, Lanmei Airlines, JC (Cambodia) International Airlines, and Sky Angkor Airlines.

It said the firms must not allow passengers to disembark and enter the Kingdom.

“The companies must have all flight attendants screened for COVID-19 virus by applying the Health Ministry’s COVID-19 preventative measures,” it said.

The government last month issued an official statement announcing the temporary suspension of flights from the Philippines, effective from August 13, after 13 Chinese nationals were tested positive for COVID-19 after taking flights from the Philippines.

Earlier last month, the government also temporarily banned all flights from Malaysia and Indonesia, aiming to curb the spread of the pandemic to the public.
