Sihanoukville airport has been experiencing a robust traffic growth since its re-commissioning in 2007 thanks to the launch of international routes and the opening of several new lines serving this destination, which is increasingly popular with domestic and Asian tourists. In December 2016, VINCI Airports started an important infrastructure enhancement program to enlarge facilities and handle the growth of passenger arrivals at Sihanoukville airport. It includes the full renovation of the existing building and the extension of the current terminal by 80%, from 2,700 sqm to 4,800 sqm.
In 2020, the airport achieved ACA carbon reduction certification level 2. This new level of certification is a recognition of the relevance of the VINCI Airports’ global environmental policy which establishes goals for its airports based on its commitment to the preservation of the environment. It also recognizes the airports’ actions to manage and reduce CO2 emissions and rewards a multi-annual effort to control and reduce their carbon footprint.
