Koh Kong province’s first-ever airport costing about US$2.2 billion is expected to be completed in May 2020, according to local media report.
The update was shared with the source recently by Mr. Wang Chao, Vice President of Union Development Group (UDG) in charge of the airport investment project.
By October 2019, the airport will be able to handle test flights, and the operation is scheduled to go official by the end of December of the same year – added the vice president.
Located in Botum Sakor district of the coastal province, the new airport once ready will have a runways of 3,200 metres and can accommodate about 400 airplanes.
