And no departure tax now right?

I haven’t seen them in PNH, and the departure tax has always been included in the ticket (Cambodians can get it refunded).

Nope, no self check-in machines at PNH.

Yeah, i remember queuing at the counter before you went up the stairs to pay the tax. Didn’t think it was as long ago as 10 years... you could be right though.

I would have guessed 4 or 5 years since it changed to be included.

It was April 2011

From April 1st 2011, the Passenger Service Charge (PSC), a charge collected from passengers departing at the airports, will be incorporated in international air tickets.

The PSC rates will remain at the current levels with no increases but the following adjustments are to be noted:

Only 2 rates will apply US $25 for adults and US $13 for children (under 12 years old). Free of charge for infants (under 2 years old).
Cambodian nationals will be entitled to refunds amounting to US $7 (adults) and US $3 (children) as, in line with the existing differential rates configuration, they are charged US $18 and US $10 respectively.
The PSC incorporation is effective for passengers who had purchased their tickets on/after January 21, 2011 (when the PSC scheme was uploaded into the worldwide reservation system) for travels on/after April 1st 2011.
Passengers who travel after April 1st 2011, but bought their tickets prior to January 21st 2011, will still pay the PSC at the airports’ counters. Likewise for passengers travelling before April 1st 2011 and having purchased their tickets before or after January 21st 2011.
For those who bought the tickets on/after January 21st 2011 for travelling plan on/after April 1st 2011, but have made changes to travel before April 1st, they will be entitled to refunds based on existing rates and are to contact their travel agency or airline.

The incorporation of the PSC in international air tickets aims at easing and speeding up travelling process at the international airports.

They don't have the self check in machines. If you check in online you can print the boarding pass and skip the line, I think.

Otherwise by checking in online you can properly use the "web check in" line to check in, which may be shorter.

I'm not sure the printed pass works here yet, does it?

Several months back I had a mobile boarding pass with Bangkok Airways I think, but they wouldn't accept it. The lady at the check-in then informed that airport was all set up to accept it like any other major airport, but the staff had not been trained on it yet and so they wouldn't accept the mobile passes.

Some months ago at least they didn't have any document check counter in PP. Needed to queue to normal check in desk. Maybe now they have as the renovations have finished? Though same closing time for baggage drop and document verification would imply it is just normal check in desk.
