Three Chinese enterprises have been chosen to build the new airport that will service the Cambodian capital. Cambodia Airport Investment Co Ltd said a total of five companies had entered the bidding process. Cambodia Airport Investment official Mr Yee Con Long said that last week that the process of designing the airport is 60 per cent complete. He said “Construction will be divided into three phases, with the first scheduled to be completed this year. We will issue permits for the three contractors on January 20. We hope to issue a letter in July authorising the construction. If all goes as planned, the airport will be ready by July 2022, at which point it will operate on a trial basis.”

He said the airport will be able to accommodate 27 million passengers by 2030, and up to 30 million by 2050.

The new Phnom Penh International Airport, a 4F-class airport, is a joint venture between local conglomerate Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation and the State Secretariat of Civil Aviation. It will be located in Kandal province and will cost USD 1.5 billion to build. Of that, USD 1.1 billion will come from loans from overseas banking institutions, while USD 280 million will be contributed by OCIC. The project will occupy 2,600ha.
