HistoryEdit

Based in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, Lanmei Airlines is a local Cambodia air transport company. Lanmei is an abbreviation for Lancang-Mekong River. The Lancang River originates in Southwest China and becomes known as Mekong as it flows through Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and into South China Sea. The company plans to operate scheduled passenger services from Phnom Penh, using A320s Family. The start-up received in-principle approval from the Cambodian government. Lanmei Airlines commenced four times weekly Phnom Penh-Hanoi and Phnom Penh-Siem Reap-Ho Chi Minh City services on 15 September 2017 and three times weekly Phnom Penh-Siem Reap-Macau-Phnom Penh service on 16 September 2017.[1]
