Is Mekong Airlines Still In Operation?

Thu Feb 05, 2004 8:26 pm

Mekong Airlines suspended operations last year during the asian SARS crisis, but were supposed to restart flights in the Summer. However, I have heard nothing from them, and now President Airlines appears to be serving Hong Kong from Phnom Penh, which was a Mekong Airlines route.

So, are Mekong Airlines flying at all, and if so, to where?

I checked their website, and it no longer appears to be active, and a google search turned up no other website. Shame, their c/s was starting to grow on me.

I think Mekong Air went bust ...

There is a new carrier called "First Cambodia Airlines" operating with leased 320 from SALE.
