Cambodia Airports to double airport capacity

By Charlotte Turner |

Cambodia Airports plans to expand terminals at Phnom Penh International Airport and Siem Reap International Airport to accommodate anticipated growth in passenger traffic.


“Cambodia has emerged as one of the fastest growing markets in Southeast Asia, recording 18% passenger growth for the second consecutive year in 2013,” says Cambodia Airports.


Construction work has started at both terminals and upon completion, scheduled to be around end 2015/early 2016, the capacity of both airports will double to 5m passengers each.



In 2013, Phnom Penh welcomed 2.39m passengers while Siem Reap received 2.66m passengers, up by 15% and 20% respectively.


Both airports handled more than 607,000 travellers, including transit passengers, in January 2014, representing an 11% increase.


Phnom Penh International Airport welcomed more than 231,000 passengers in January 2014 while Siem Reap International Airport handled more than 366,000 passengers, an increase of 14% and 8% respectively compared to January 2013.


The domestic traffic between Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, the third international airport located in the coastal region of Cambodia, increased by 160% compared to the same period last year.
