Siem Reap
Angkor International Airport

The airport of Siem Reap

Cambodia Bayon Airlines is the name of the newest carrier to enter the Cambodian air transport scene. Scheduled domestic services between Phnom Penh (PNH) and Siem Reap (REP) began at the end of December using an MA60 turboprop aircraft. Flights currently operate thrice-weekly (Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays) on the 235-kilometre sector, which is already served by Cambodia Angkor Air with 39 weekly flights. The new airline is a joint venture with Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC). The airline plans to be operating 30 aircraft within five years, 20 MA60s and 10 A320s, to cover domestic routes and to connect Cambodia with ASEAN countries as well as China, Japan and South Korea.


Siem reap - Angkor International Airport is the second airport of Cambodia.  Siem Reap Airways is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bangkok Airways.

As soon as you step out of the plane, youíll be greeted by the humid Cambodian air seeing that you'll be walking from the plane to the building in the open air. The walk isnít far at all, because they literally park the plane in front of the arrival hall.

There are mainly two types of visas for travellers: the tourist visa (20 US dollars and is valid for 30 days, not renewable) and the business visa (25 US dollars and is valid for 30 days, but can be renewed multiple times. You need also a passport photo (3x4 cm)

The process of applying for a visa is simple, but you do have to wait while it is processed.
There are at least two ATM machines in the arrival hall; one near the visa section and another near the immigration line. If you need to apply for an on-arrival visa, the visa fee must be paid in cash. So these ATM machines come in handy if you don't have enough on hand. 
The baggage claim area is immediately after the immigration line.
There is one duty free shop in the arrival hall, but hardly anyone stops there. It sells mostly cigarettes and postcards. Thereís a wider selection of items in the departure hall.
Thereís not really a custom check here, at least they don't seem to actually enforce it. Also, that custom form you filled out on the airplane? It may become useless if thereís no one standing on duty at customs.

 

Waiting or the suitcases....
The arrival hall

The airport sits 6km from town, close to the temples, occasionally affording spectacular views of Angkor Wat during landings and take offs. Outside the terminal is a ticket booth for registered taxis into town. Independent taxis and motorcycles wait just outside the airport. The price is the same for both: motorcycles are $1 and cars are $5 into town. Most hotels offer free transportation from the airport but you must notify them in advance of your arrival.
