The airline describes itself:
Cambodia Airways Company Limited (KR) is fully-owned by Prince International Airlines Company Limited (PIA). Cambodia Airways is registered in Phnom Penh. Initial approval for our operations was received from the Royal Government of the Kingdom of Cambodia in August of 2017. We are a Cambodian company. We are supported by Cambodian investors.
Cambodia Airways has operation centers in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville. We operate scheduled and chartered flights to Korea, Japan, mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. We plan to bolster our fleet with some 20 Airbus A320 aircraft by 2023, as we seek to expand our intercontinental routes to Australia and Europe.
The Cambodia Airways logo design is inspired by the Angkor Wat temple, which is an iconic structure in Cambodia and the largest monument of its kind in the world. A symbol of the temple appears on the national flag of the Kingdom of Cambodia and we are proud to bear it into the clouds, as representatives of our unique and beautiful nation.
