Yangon Intl

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 and busiest international airport of Myanmar and the largest. The airport's old terminal is used exclusively for domestic flights, and the new terminal, in operation since May 2007, handles international flights. Airport capacity has been boosted to 6 million in early 2016, but this is still insufficient so there are plans to build a completely new airport Hanthawaddy International Airport on a much larger site and somewhat away from Yangon.

Yangon

Yangon (Burmese: ရန်ကုန်, MLCTS rankun mrui, pronounced: [jàɴɡòʊɴ mjo̰]; also known as Rangoon, literally: "End of Strife") is a former capital of Myanmar and the capital of Yangon Region. Yangon is the country's largest city with a population of nearly six million, and is the most important commercial centre, although the military government officially relocated the capital to the newly built city of Naypyidaw in March 2006. Although Yangon's infrastructure is undeveloped compared to that of other major cities in southeast Asia, it now has the largest number of colonial buildings in the region. While many high-rise residential and commercial buildings have been constructed or renovated throughout the city centre and Greater Yangon in the past two decades, most satellite towns that ring the city continue to be deeply impoverished.
