Siem Reap- The future project of a new international airport in Siem Reap will be built on over 700 hectares of land with an investment of approximately $ 900 million invested by YUNAN Development Group, a Chinese-based giant.
Over the last five years, the growth of air travel in Cambodia has steadily increased. In fact, in 2017, Cambodia's three airports received 8 million passengers, compared to 7 million in 2016. By 2018, Cambodia is preparing to welcome 10 million air passengers.

Spokesman Sin Chansavutha said by phone on December 3 that the Siem Reap airport construction project is progressing slowly, but not as fast as they would like, because it could take 5 to 10 years.
According to his information, the development company has had the land cleared and now a lot of ground tests and technical work are underway to get the ground ready for construction. "Technical work is a tough job that can take another year to complete, he said. It takes a lot of time. "

Shanxi wins bid to build sections of new Siem Reap airport
Asia News Network | Publication date 11 July 2019

Shanxi Mechanization Construction Group recently won the bid to build two sections of the new Siem Reap Angkor International Airport project in Cambodia for 290 million yuan ($42.16 million).

The existing Angkor International Airport in Siem Reap, 5km from the famous ancient temple complex and world tourism site Angkor Wat, has only one runway.

Officials have said the vibrations caused by the take-offs and landings of aircraft may damage the foundation of Angkor Wat and the current volume of air traffic cannot meet the rapid development of the local tourism industry.

The new Siem Reap Angkor International Airport – set to be the largest one in Cambodia – will be located 51km southeast of downtown Siem Reap and 40km from Angkor Archaeological Park.

It will cover an area of around 700ha and cost $880 million to construct.

It's always gets interesting when stupidity turns into blatant lying.
