Yangon International Airport (Burmese: ရန်ကုန်အပြည်ပြည်ဆိုင်ရာလေဆိပ်; MLCTS: Yan Gon a pyi pyi hsai ya hlay hsate [jàɴɡòʊɴ əpjìpjì sʰàɪɴjà lèzeɪʔ]) (IATA: RGN, ICAO: VYYY), located in Mingaladon, at 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) north of downtown Yangon, is the primary international airport of Burma and the third largest airport in the country after Mandalay international airport and Nay Pyi Taw international airport. Once, it was regarded as the best and most modern airport in Southeast Asia[citation needed].

The airport’s old terminal is used exclusively for domestic flights, and the new terminal, in operation since May 2007, handles international flights. The airport, which can handle 2.7 million passengers a year, handled 800,000 international passengers and 1.2 million domestic passengers in 2006. All five Burmese carriers and about 20 international airlines operate out of Yangon International. In June 2011, the government announced plans to expand the airport by 40% and increase its capacity from 2.7 million passengers to 3.8 million passengers, annually. The airport is already over its annual capacity of 2.7 million passengers, having accepted 3.1 million in 2012.
