Koh Kong: As planned, Dara Sakor International Airport, Koh Kong Province, is scheduled to be launched in June, while the airport is currently conducting tests to ensure that everything works well and smoothly.
According to a report published by Rasmei Kampuchea on the morning of March 15, 2021, Mr. Sin Chanserivutha, Spokesman and Secretary of State for Civil Aviation, said that after the completion of construction in December 2020, the company is now operating and has requested a certificate from the Ministry to operate aircraft. He said that Civil Aviation Authority is currently reviewing the operation, which will take six months (*after starting in January) to ensure that the company has tested the equipment and other factors. “Actually, the construction has been completed, but it has to be tested and the application for the certificate has a long time, 6 months from the time of construction, so it will be time to test and apply,” he said.
It should be noted that Darasakor International Airport, worth a total of $ 350 million, was developed by the Chinese firm Tianjin Union Development Group (UDG), which received an economic land concession from the Cambodian government for the construction of the airport and other development areas in In Botum Sakor district, Koh Kong province, near the Gulf of Thailand.
