It is the busiest airport in Cambodia in terms of passenger traffic. The airport's new terminal was inaugurated on 28 August 2006. The Cambodian government has plans to replace the airport with a new one, 60 km from Siem Reap.
As of 2008, extensions to the airport's apron and parking areas are taking place. Air Traffic Control is provided by CATS (Cambodia Air Traffic Services), with full approach and aerodrome VHF facilities being housed in the control tower, between the fire station and the domestic terminal.
