The Airport

Phnom Penh International Airport is the main airport of Cambodia and was formerly called Pochentong International Airport. The airport of Phnom Penh was a small airport that in recent years has grown enormously in terms of the numbers of flights and travelers (from half a million in 1998 to 1.2 million in 2007, and 1.3 million travelers in 2011 according to communications manager for Cambodia Airports Khek Norinda and news reports). This has to do with growing tourism in Cambodia and the arrival of regional budget flights. The airport appears modern, efficient, clean, and free from any kind of corruption as far as tourists are concerned, when arriving, departing, and purchasing visas on site.
