Airport nears completion.

Kampot airport is on the verge of re-opening some thirty years after its last scheduled flight.

Although the project is controversial it will be a boost to Kampot and its surroundings, local and international flights are due to commence early next year with only the clearance of the flight path awaiting completion.

Sadly the airport was constructed before environmental studies were completed, thus we all know now that the largest part of the project remains to be completed, the flight path.

Due to the orientation of the airport the flight path for landings will take planes dangerously close to Bokor mountain, so close so in fact that 20% of the mountain will have to be removed before scheduled flights begin, sadly this removal will also remove the new road being constructed.

KSG officials are monitoring the works on the airport and Mountain so stay tuned for updates.
