Malindo Air is the main cause of Cambodia's airports receiving more passengers
The operator VINCI Airports, who operates three airports in Cambodia, has reported that 3 million passengers used these airports in the first quarter of 2018, a 26.1% year-on-year increase. At Phnom Penh Airport, the country's capital, this upward trend is even steeper at a staggering 34.5%. The capital’s airport handled 1.4 million passengers, while the increase was mainly attributed to new services introduced by Malindo, Vietjet and Shenzhen Airlines. Chinese carriers such as Spring, China Southern Airlines and Xiamen Airlines all increased services to Phnom Penh.
Local Cambodian start-up airlines, JC International and Lanmei Airlines, may also be responsible for the surge in traffic, as both recently established flights to Singapore and Bangkok. Passenger traffic at Siem Reap airport increased by 17.4%. Travellers from China topped the passenger lists, while domestic travel also expanded. This is part of an ever-growing tourism trend in the country, who saw the number of international travellers visiting the kingdom reaching 5.6 million in 2017, up 11.8% (statistics from the Ministry of Tourism). If predictions are correct, Cambodia should be letting through its immigration over 6.1 million tourists this year.
