CAMBODIA’s passenger service charge (PSC) on international departures will be included in airfares from April 1, according to Société Concessionnaire des Aéroports (SCA).
SCA operates the country’s three international airports in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville.
Passengers who booked flights on or after January 21 intending to fly in April or beyond already have the PSC – US$25 for adults, US$13 for children under 12 and free for babies under two – included in their fares. Cambodian nationals are charged US$18 for adults and US$10 for children.
Passengers who travel after April 1 but bought their tickets prior to January 21 will still have to pay the fee at the airport.
According to SCA, airlines serving 80 per cent of passengers at Cambodia’s international airports have already implemented the new charges, while the remaining carriers are in discussions to join.
