Techo International Airport Scheduled to Commence Early 2025

The Techo International Airport (TIA), whose construction is about 50 percent complete now, is scheduled to commence in early 2025.

Mr. Charles Vann, Director of Cambodia Airport Investment Co., Ltd. (CAIC), mentioned the construction progress at the signing ceremony of the MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) joint venture agreement at Techo International Airport with Singapore-based SIA Engineering Company on May 30.

“Currently, we have completed 50 percent of the construction and we are continuing and monitoring how to put the airport into operation by early 2025,” he said.

The Techo International Airport project has been authorised by the Royal Government to CAIC, a joint venture between the Royal Government of Cambodia through the State Secretariat of Civil Aviation and Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC), to build and develop the new Phnom Penh International Airport in Kandal and Takeo provinces, about 20 kilometres south of Phnom Penh capital.

TIA (Phase 1) is a greenfield airport with a total investment budget of US$1.5 billion.

TIA, to be developed in three phases, is designed for 50 million passengers, with three runways and a satellite terminal across a total land area of 2,600 hectares.
