Cambodian airports to double capacity


Expansion plans will double passenger capacity at Phnom Penh and Siem Reap airports in Cambodia, according to a local aviation official.

The project will expand parking areas, terminals and all facilities at the two international airports, Khek Norinda, communications director for Cambodia Airports, said.

''Each airport will double its capacity to 5 million [passengers per year] from the current 2.5 million [passengers per year]'' the Cambodia Daily on Monday quoted Mr Norinda as saying.

A consortium led by French firm Vinci Construction and Malaysian company Muhibbah Engineering was awarded the contract for the two projects last year by Cambodia Airports.
