The Dara Sakor International Airport in Koh Kong province will be ready for test in early 2022 and officially open in the middle of the same year.

The update was shared by a representative of the construction company with H.E. Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism in a recent meeting at Dara Sakor vacation zone to prepare for the reopening for fully vaccinated foreign tourists.

According to the construction company, the new airport will be able to handle nearly 1 million passengers a year.

H.E. Thong Khon encouraged the construction company to speed up the construction process in order to launch as soon as possible domestic and international flights, especially to connect to Siem Reap province, home to the famous Angkor temples, that will reopen for foreign visitors in January 2022.

Chinese-owned Union Development Group (UDG) invested US$3.5-billion to build the airport on the land area of 4.5 hectares in Botom Sakor district, Koh Kong province.

It is one of three airports currently under construction in Cambodia, and the other two are the new Phnom Penh international airport located in Kandal and Takeo provinces, and the new Siem Reap international airport in Siem Reap province.
