After the Phnom Penh and Siem Reap airports, VINCI has won the concession for the Sihanoukville airport in Cambodia

The Royal Government of Cambodia has decided to award the build and operate contract for the Sihanoukville international airport to the Société Concessionnaire des Aéroports ("SCA"), a VINCI subsidiary, in the framework of a 35-year concession.

Total investment in this platform could come to 200 million dollars over the term of the concession. The airport will eventually cater for over two million passengers a year.

Development of an international airport in Sihanoukville is a crucial challenge for the Cambodian economy. It should facilitate exploitation of the energy resources of the Gulf of Siam, contribute to the expansion of logistical and port activities in this coastal city and also to development of tourism in a still largely untouched coastal region.

The airport will make it possible to create leisure facilities complementing the exceptional sites of the ancient Khmer civilization (the Angkor temples), thereby enriching the Kingdom's overall tourist offering.

SCA, which has held the concession for the Phnom Penh airport since 1995 and the Siem Reap airport since 2001, catered for 2.1 million passengers in 2005, a 16% increase on 2004. In the first half of 2006, passenger traffic to these two airports was up 20% on 2005, with a total of 1,245,562 passengers.
