Apsara International Airline, a joint cooperation by Chinese and Cambodian investors, on Wednesday started to operate daily domestic flights from the Cambodian capital to the Cultural Province of Siem Reap.

Apsara received an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from the Cambodia's Civil Aviation last month. Zhang Xiaopeng, the airlines CEO, said the company will launch an international route between Cambodia and China by the end of 2014 and extend wings to Japan, South Korea and Russia within five years.

He said that the airline is dedicated to serving Cambodian tourism market and to attracting more foreign business people to Cambodia, particularly Chinese investors.

On Monday, Cambodia's Civil Aviation also approved operations for another Chinese-invested Bassaka Air, which is expected to take to the skies by mid-October.

The airline operates with an Airbus-320 aircraft. Around 27 airlines are operating domestic and international routes in the country.
