Lanmei Airlines to add new international routes

Lanmei Airlines is expanding. The new carrier will add the Phnom Penh – Hanoi, Siem Reap – Ho Chi Ming City and Shihananoukville – Hong Kong routes on December 20, 2017 according to Airline Route.

Lanmei Airlines (Cambodia) Co., Ltd. was founded on March 7, 2016, and commenced its first flight on September 29, 2017. The AOC was granted on August 15, 2017.

The maiden flight of Lanmei Airlines by an Airbus A320 was from Sihanoukville to Macau and onward to Palau (above). The flight from Macau to Palau boarded 144 passengers and 177 ones from Macau to Sihanoukville.

To commemorate this special day, Lanmei Airlines prepared carefully for its maiden flight celebration. Lanmei Airlines’ staff presented customized postcard, scarf, free SIM card etc. to each passenger at three terminals. Its cabin crew continued surprises in the sky: free flight tickets, stewardess scarves, aircraft models, customized blankets and USB flash discs were lucky draws. Each time a lucky passenger won, the whole cabin turned into a sea of joy.

According to the airline:

Named after Lancang-Mekong River, Lanmei Airlines’ logo looks like a peacock spreading its tails. Lanmei Airlines chooses peacock as logo because it symbolizes propitious totem in both oriental and western culture. The six feather of the wings-like logo represents the six Greater Mekong River countries who are the community of shared destiny & shared river. The logo also looks like a rotating aircraft engine, implying to supply new and steady thrust to these six nations.
