Isn't the arrangement with Royal Brunei a little odd - i mean - does the Brunei Investment Agency still hold a stake in MAS?

Four years ago, BIA (Brunei Investment Agency) has sold its 70m shares in MAS to Khazanah Nasional Berhad (pre Penerbangan Malaysia Berhad or PMB, MAS Parent Company) in an off-market transaction.

Back then, BIA was the carrier's largest single foreign shareholder, and the sale of shares means that there is no longer any substantial foreign shareholder in the national carrier.



This is Malaysian Hospitality. This is MH.

I think it was just a question of time that MAS would fly into REP. I understand, that there are a lot of Malaysian companies dealing in Cambodia.

I mean MH and BI codeshare on all flights between KUL and BWN anyway.

Please correct me if I'm wrong here. I always thought the reason for airlines like MH & MI to serve Siem Reap is largely for easy excess to Angkor, which is a leisure route rather than business. The latter is served by flights to Phnom Penh instead.

Sorry for going off topic, but while you are talking about BI, I saw a BI A340 parked right up at the terminal 3 building in SZB (next to a berjaya air Dash 7). Any idea what it might be doing there?

The BI A340 mentioned is V8-BKH, A340-200 ( I think the only A342 with the high MTOW version ).

No idea what it is doing, mx or a visit by some royalty?

It is true that there are lots of MY investment in Cambodia, and all over Cambodia in many industries incl electricity power generating. REP I'd also say is for the tourists heading to Angkor Wat.

Good news for MH and their successful expansion!

I noticed that a couple of MH's destinations do not show up in the schedules after the end of October. Does anyone know why?

I assume they just haven't planned out those destinations yet.

I didn't say there are no tourists. But there are a lot of joint-ventures (even in the Tourism sector) between Cambodian and Malaysian companies.

BA
which destinations are you talking about?

Isn't V8-BKH the only A340-8000 built?? or is it a regular A342?

BTW Malaysia is Cambodia's largest or second largest foreign investor.

Triple Seven, how are the relations between Thailand and Cambodia now? I think there is still a strong economical link, isn't it?
Not only because of all the flights from BKK to REP / PNH.

Swissgabe,

From what I can think of right now, BEY. But there were a couple others as well.

How are loads into BEY doing? Not that bad, isn't it?

Swissgabe,

Considering that they just upgraded it from 2x weekly 772 via DXB to 3x weekly A332 via DXB, I'd say loads are good. It's around a 130 seat increase in capacity.

Maybe they are considering reviving the code-share with MEA and making it non-stop again like it was before 9/11 and that's why they don't have it in the schedule after the end of October.

Regards

Swissgabe,
Honestly I don't know much. There are sporadic tension between the Thai govt and that of Hun Sen regime. The latest, IIRC involves the Angkor Watt. Someone on the Thai side offended the Cambodians with a remark that claims the Angkor as being Thais (if someone is familiar with this please fill in for me). Anyway, owing to geography and cultural similarity the two countries will have to have strong economical links (like it or not). Mutual benefits.
