Sihanoukville International Airport (IATA: KOS, ICAO: VDSV), located 18 km east of Sihanoukville, is Cambodia's third international airport. The airport is also known as Kang Keng Airport. The IATA code KOS dates from Sihanoukville's former name Kompong Som.

The airfield was originally constructed in the 1960s with assistance from the Soviet Union. After a long period of dormancy during and after the Khmer Rouge era, the airport formally reopened on January 15, 2007. The airport's runway is being extended to 2,200 meters, which will allow it to accommodate jet airplanes such as the Boeing 737.
