AFP reports that Cambodia's civil aviation authority will not renew an agreement for Thai-owned Bangkok Airways to operate domestic services in the kingdom when it expires next month. Bangkok Airways has been flying daily between Phnom Penh and the tourist hub Siem Reap since last year after its subsidiary, Siem Reap Airways, was grounded for safety concerns. It appears that the decision was made in order to give a boost to the country's new national airline, Cambodia Angkor Air, which was launched in July.

As we've said before, we hope the new carrier is better than its website!
