The construction of the center will start in the second half of 2014 in the eastern compound of the Phnom Penh International Airport on the area of 8,000 square meters, he said.

The construction will be completed in a year with necessary facilities for training airline staff, he said. South Korea will dispatch its experts and instructors to train Cambodian airline crew at the center until 2017.

Cambodia received 4.3 million air passengers in 2012, up 14.7 per cent year-on-year, according to the data of the Cambodia Airports.
