    Asian Start-Up Airlines

    These are just four examples of Asian start-up carriers. If there's this crippling, worldwide pilot shortage, why are people still starting airlines. Asia is supposed to be hardest hit by this shortage. So, why do people commit large sums of money if they can't get people to fly their airplanes ? Perhaps because they CAN find all the pilots they'll need ?

    A bit more info:


    “Per their schedule, MJ Airlines (Phnom Penh) will operate at the end of the year, and Domrey Angkor Airlines (Phnom Penh) will start early next year,” A spokesman for the SSCA, Sin Chanserey Vutha, told The Phnom Penh Times.

    Both carriers are backed by Chinese capital as are several others that have also started the licencing gaunlet. KC International Airlines, Prince International Airlines, Air Siem Reap (backed by Bangkok Airways), and Cambodia Airways have applied for licences to join the local market, but are still waiting for their applications to be approved.
