Phnom Penh International Airport last Thursday hit the two-million-passenger mark in a year for the first time.

The figure included all international and domestic passengers arriving at, and departing from, Phnom Penh International Airport since the beginning of this year, a press release said.

“Regarding the breaking of the two million pax mark in 2012, it is in line with our forecast,” Norinda Khek, communications and PR director at the airport, told the Post.

He said the airport’s passenger traffic growth was expected to be seven per cent per annum.
