Airport construction taking off in Phnom Penh

Construction work on the new USD$1.5 billion Phnom Penh international airport is 66 per cent complete, according to the latest government update.

Officially known as Techo International Airport, work started on the facility in June 2020 and it is due to become operational by mid-2025. It is situated 20 km from the capital in Kandal province.

The first phase of development will accommodate up to 13 million passengers a year, with a forecast to handle 50 million travellers annually after the completion of the third and final stage in 2050. It will be the ninth largest airport in the world.

Techo will be categorised as Class 4F, a rating for airports that can accommodate the largest aircraft on runways over 3,000 metres in length. On a recent visit, Prime Minister Dr Hun Manet described it as a symbol of peace and development in the country.
