Trip.com Group and Cambodia Angkor Air have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on May 24 to collaborate on the construction of a smart airport, develop tourism talent training programmes, and further promote Cambodia as a key global destination.
Cambodia Angkor Air will leverage on Trip.com Group’s global user network and leading product capacity to increase its global market reach, while Trip.com Group will improve Angkor International Airport’s digital and intelligent services, and help the airport become an essential smart airport in the region.
Both parties will further embark on marketing campaigns and cooperation in hotel development, travel visa services, and tourism talent training programmes in both countries.
Tekreth Samrach, minister attached to the prime minister, and chairman of Cambodia Angkor Air, said: “We hope to grasp the opportunity of global tourism revival, and closely work with Trip.com Group to carry out comprehensive cooperation, from constructing smart airports to enhancing our services for more travellers”.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Cambodia Angkor Air to support Cambodia in achieving its full global market potential and linking it with the international tourism industry,” shared Xing Xiong, COO of Trip.com Group.
The new Angkor International Airport in Cambodia will be put into operation later in October, with projected passenger numbers of seven million people per year, and expected to increase to 10 million people per year by 2030.
