The New Phnom Penh Airport is a proposed development to serve the city of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The proposed airport will be located 30-40km outside of the city and is expected to be operational by 2025.

Jan-2020. Cambodia's State Secretariat of Civil Aviation (SSCA) senior deputy director Sinn Chanserey Vutha reported three undisclosed companies from China have been shortlisted to construct a new USD1.5 billion airport for Phnom Penh in Kandal Stueng District. The airport is a JV between local real estate conglomerate Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC) and the SSCA. It will cover an area of 2600 hectares, making it one of the world's largest airports by land area.

Feb-2019. Cambodia's Government established a special commission to supervise the development of the planned USD1.5 billion New Phnom Penh Airport. The commission will include representatives from the Council for the Development of Cambodia, the Council of Ministers, and several ministries including the interior, economy and finance, industry, water resources, and public works. 

Jan-2018. Cambodia Airport Investment Company plans to construct a new USD1.5 billion airport for Phnom Penh in Kandal Stueng District. State Secretariat of Civil Aviation spokesperson Sin Chansereyvutha commented: "As far I know, the location being considered for the new airport is somewhere in southern Phnom Penh. It will be comparable in size to the new airport in Siem Reap". The company is a joint venture between Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC) and the Cambodian Government's State Secretariat of Civil Aviation, with OCIC to control 90% of the new airport.

Jun-2016. Phnom Penh International Airport’s proposed domestic terminal development project will be suspended due to community opposition, announced director of the economic, social and cultural council Yem Nolla, revealing plans for a new airport development instead in the outskirts of the city. State Secretariat of Civil Aviation sporkesperson Sinn Sereyvuth stated the government hopes “the new airport can create better economic opportunities” in the long run as compared to expanding Phnom Penh Airport. The proposed airport will be located 30-40km outside of the city and is expected to be operational by 2025.
