New Siem Reap Airport Opening in October 2023

The all-new Siem Reap airport is on track to open in October 2023 as construction is currently 90% complete. Replacing the existing airport, it will be the country’s largest airport by far, allowing a much wider range of aircraft to use it, such as the Boeing 737, Airbus A320 and other larger craft, which clears the way for more potential long-haul routes to be launched. This has been restricted until now, due to the proximity of the existing airport to the temples of Angkor.

The airport is 50km from Siem Reap city, with transfers to the city expected to take around an hour along a newly constructed expressway. Please note that transfer prices will increase, in line with the new travel distance and time, and new schedules for domestic flights will be announced in due course.
