Vietravel Airlines, which has leased one aircraft from Cambodia Airways, has asked the carrier for three more this year.
In June, Vietravel Airlines took delivery of an Airbus A319 to increase its fleet to four. It will get an Airbus A320 from the Cambodian carrier next month.
If it can lease three more planes from Cambodia Airways before the end of this year, it will expand its network to South Korea and Japan, and better serve the travel boom during the Lunar New Year holidays early next year.
The deal will also help start more services to tourist destinations in Vietnam and Cambodia.
The carrier, launched in early 2021, hopes to increase its fleet to 25 aircraft by 2025 and to 50 by 2030.
