Yangon International Airport currently hosts over 360,000 passengers per month, with 120 flights landing daily, said U Aung Kyaw Tun, the deputy director-general of the Civil Aviation Department.
Previously, there were only 40 flights per day that landed at Yangon International Airport. With the added flights to and from all over the world, the Yangon airport now handles over 4 million passengers a year, he added.
With the development of the travel and tourism sector, the airport terminal and airlines are also expanding. There are direct flights from Yangon International Airport to China, Japan, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, China (Taipei), Viet Nam and Qatar. Yangon International Airport receives more and more passengers year by year.
Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) launched Yangon-Chiang Mai-Yangon flights recently, and MNA will also extend the frequency of Yangon-Singapore-Yangon evening flights in December.
