Upgrading airside infrastructure at key tourist gateways.
The number of passengers going through Cambodia’s international airports – namely Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville and Siem Reap – has experienced double to triple-digit growth over recent years. The three airports together served 55+ destinations with 700 regular flights per week and hit a record high of 10 million passengers in 2018, before the Covid-19 pandemic.
All three airports are operated by Cambodia Airports/SCA. However, they have different types of traffic and serve regions with distinct features and interests that are popular with both tourists and business visitors. They are each key to the country’s economic growth and regional development. Phnom Penh is the airport of the capital city, while Sihanoukville is close to the main seaside resorts and Special Economic Zone. Siem Reap is the gateway to the famous Angkor temples.
To cope with anticipated traffic growth and to further improve services at the airports, in 2016 Cambodia Airports launched investment programme to expand passenger facilities and refurbish airside infrastructure. Egis was contracted to assist.
