Phnom Penh Airport

Procedures and practical informations

Time and deadlines
The attention of travelers is drawn to the fact that their presence is required at the airport two hours before the scheduled departure time. Identity checks to access the terminal and the different areas inside the terminal must be taken into account in your travel planning. Most companies close their check-in counters 45 minutes before departure time. Once you have checked in, it is also advisable to go immediately to the boarding gates, as police formalities may take a long time if several take-offs are scheduled at short intervals.
Arriving passengers must count an average of 20 to 30 minutes to complete the formalities of police and customs and to retrieve their luggage.
Time and deadlines
