Airports in Myanmar

International airports in Myanmar are based in Yangon and Mandalay. Currently, construction is underway at the Yangon International Airport to further increase its capacity from 2.7 million passengers a year to more than 3.8 million annually. Moreover, some domestic airports in Myanmar will be also be transformed into international airports to serve the growing foreign interest in the country. It is being planned to invest $4 million into the Dawei Airport to convert it into an international facility. Three domestic companies are currently providing international service: Air Mandalay, Yangon Airways and Myanmar Airways International The schedule for domestic flights is quite limited, but this is the most efficient way to move about such a large country. Myanmar has over 60 airstrips with 46 local airports in every state except in Chin. The government intends to privatize all of these airports to promote future growth.
