Koh Kong airport to be ready in three years

Recommended Posts

The Dara Sakor International Airport, which is now being built in the southwestern province of Koh Kong, will be ready in the next three years, according to the Minister of Aviation.

 

The airport is being raised near the Dara Sakor resort, which Prime Minister Hun Sen earlier this year hailed as a “luxury eco-tourism destination” that will put Koh Kong on the map for international tourists. The airfield, a project of Chinese-owned Union Development Group (UDG), will be able to handle long-haul aircraft like Boeing 777 and Airbus A340.

 

It will be located on Koh Kong’s Botum Sakor district, where the company was given a 99-year concession in 2008. The Minister of the State Secretariat of Civil Aviation (SSCA) Mao Havanall told Khmer Times on Friday that construction of the Dara Sakor International Airport is going according to schedule. “Among the five airports that are now being built, I think Dara Sakor International Airport in Koh Kong has a good chance of being the first one to become operational,” Mr Havanall said.

So i guess if you want to fly there from Trat you will have to fly to BKK first.

You could fly from Trat airport to the existing Koh Kong airport. Be a bumpy landing.

The Trat airport is a long way west of Trat. May as well just drive to Koh Kong. Good scenery.
