Phnom Penh International Airport is the flagship aviation hub for the country of Cambodia, located ten kilometres west of the country’s capital city Phnom Penh. It was formerly known as Pochentong International Airport and now serves as the hotspot for international travel incorporating recently renovated facilities that attribute to its popularity and reigning modern presence.
The airport boasts two main terminal buildings separated by domestic and international travel and one major runway. The location serves more than 20 airlines and is equipped with an inclusive VIP service. High-end jewellery boutiques, luxury travel shops, duty-free areas and a concentration of eateries nestled between waiting lounges compose the interior of the expansive building. A popular Dairy Queen and Starbucks are located on site.
The airport contains vast personal vehicle parking areas spread across a huge car park. Transportation options to and from the airport include taxis and three-wheeled vehicles.
The airport was granted permission to begin operations on account of a joint venture agreement signed in 1995. The Berger Group was appointed by the Royal Government of Cambodia to engineer the modern aviation complex that now serves as a central component of the country’s growing tourism industry. The airport is equipped to serve more than two million passengers annually.
