Cambodia Part 1: China, Thailand drive double digit passenger growth for sixth consecutive year


Cambodia continues to experience rapid traffic growth driven by surging demand from China. Passenger traffic in Cambodia has grown at a rate exceeding 10% for six consecutive years, including 13% in 2015.

China has been the biggest driver of growth, with Chinese visitor numbers increasing by at least 20% for six consecutive years. Capacity on the traditional route to Bangkok, the main gateway for long haul passengers heading to or from Cambodia, has also grown over the last year.

However, the rate of passenger growth in Cambodia slowed significantly in 2015, particularly at Siem Reap. Cambodia is still one of the hottest markets in Southeast Asia but neighbouring Vietnam is now expanding faster. Growth is expected to slow further in 2016, and will likely fail to reach double digits for the first time since 2009.
