Sihanoukville airport talks

SIEM REAP – Negotiations are ongoing to begin running flights between Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, Nicolas Deviller, Societe Concessionnaire des Aeroports (SCA) CEO, said Thursday at a conference in Siem Reap. He declined to name which airlines would offer flights to the airport, which, like all other airports in the Kingdom, is run by SCA. The recently refurbished airport has struggled to attract carriers, SCA admitted at the end of last year, and has yet to confirm any scheduled flights. Speaking in Siem Reap at the Airports Council International Asia-Pacific Human Resources Best Practice Seminar, Deviller pointed to the rapid evolution of Siem Reap’s airport. “It’s gone through the most transformational revolution,” he said, citing growth in passenger traffic from 450,000 in 2001 to 1.7 million in 2007 and the addition of a 3,000-square-metre domestic terminal.
