Phnom Penh Airport

General information

Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia, located on the Mekong River and Tonlé Sap River. It’s a busy city with 1.5 million inhabitants and a lot of construction work going on. Phnom Penh was never a big tourist attraction, but things are changing. This is one of the reasons why a new airport will be opened, located 30 kilometres south of the city.

Cambodia has two major international airports, both operated by the French company VINCI Airports. The other airport is Siem Reap Airport close to the temples of Angkor.
