Phnom Penh International Airport airport codes|PNH|VDPP ( _km. អាកាសយានដ្ឋានអន្តរជាតិភ្នំពេញ _fr. Aéroport International De Phnom Penh) is the main airport of Cambodia and is located in the country's capital city, Phnom Penh 7 km (4.3 miles) west of central Phnom Penh. The airport's former name was Pochentong International Airport.

On July 6, 1995, the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) signed a concession agreement with a French-Malaysian joint venture, Société Concessionaire d’Aéroport (SCA), to operate Pochentong International Airport (PNH) serving Phnom Penh. In return for a 20-year concession, SCA, 70 percent owned by Groupe GTM and 30 percent by Muhibbah Masterron of Malaysia, committed to a $110 million improvement program, including construction of a new runway, terminal and cargo buildings, hangers, installation of a Cat III level Instrument Landing System (ILS) and associated approach lighting.

The Berger Group was selected by the RGC to provide independent engineering services during the concession, to audit the design and to advise on the practicality and cost of the concession’s proposed improvements. The Berger team also supervised the initial works to accommodate widebody aircraft such as 747s, including asphalt concrete runway overlays; installation of new ILS, metrological equipment, runway lighting and generator and power systems; and construction of a new fire station, taxiway and turn-pad extensions.

Following the successful completion of the initial works, the Berger team provided design review and independent engineering services for the construction of a new 18,000-square-meter terminal building to accommodate growing tourist traffic. The $22 million terminal building includes three mobile aerobridges, over 700 auto parking spaces and VIP and CIP facilities.

The airport also has a Dairy Queen inside. It is one of the first international franchises that have opened up in Cambodia.
