Yangon Airport customer review

(Australia)

Generally a nice and well-run airport. Spacious and airy (they'll need some expansion to handle likely growth though) staff are good free (but slow) wifi and most processes run smoothly. Even the taxis are starting to get organised and a shuttle bus is about to start. Two things to watch for - although immigration is fast if you're getting a VOA or collecting a visa ordered by an agency that queue can take hours. Also huge crowds sometimes congregate in the landside part of the terminal (probably extended families) and are a hassle to get through.

Yangon Airport customer review

(Singapore)

I want to join the chorus of glowing reviewers for Yangon Airport. Whilst the runway and surroundings are dated the terminal itself feels thoroughly modern. Bright airy it does lack a little on the side of facilities but it is one of those airports where USD 8 gets you lounge access with free WIFI food and soft drinks. What really impressed me was that after my flight landed I had deplaned gone through customs collected my bag changed money and hit the very nice toilet in 15 minutes. Fantastic.

(Indonesia)

The whole arrival/departure experience has improved dramatically since I was last here in 2002. A new terminal much friendlier (actually smiling!) immigration staff and facilities such as moneychangers offering decent rates. Overall it was a hassle-free experience. I was pleasantly surprised.

Wonderful airport. Could include more cultural elements in the decor. Immigration and customs very efficient for arrivals and departures. Will be better if the international and domestic terminals can be in one building or with a good connecting bridge or similar sort.

Yangon Airport customer review

(United States)

Fully air conditioned spacious efficient and comfortable. Perhaps the only problem one might face is getting through the crowds around the airport entrances. Once inside everything is convenient services are decent check-in is fast immigration is not too bad and there is an interesting array of counters once you pass immigration. Myanmar Air offers access to their comfortable lounge for US$8 if you have extra time. So much for the International airport. While the international airport is a dream the domestic section is something of a nightmare. Poorly lit poorly air conditioned uncomfortable dirty. Word has it though that the Japanese (who built the International airport) are soon going to upgrade the domestic section.

(Thailand)

Quite a painless experience. Flew in from Bangkok return. The new terminal is spacious clean. Arrivals passport control was varied with a smiley efficient man who managed to get his line move faster than his colleague a female officer without emotions. Official taxi service is in USD and more expensive than if you take a city taxi. Departures was busy but took minutes to check-in and passport control quick and courteous. Boarding area very spacious.

(United Kingdom)

New terminal clean. Early morning flight. Interesting arrangements for check-in. Need to pay 10 USD departure tax before check-in but desk did not open until 06.30. Once I had paid the tax then had to wait until security opened at 06.35. Check-in slow because no computerisation but efficient. Airport facilities adequate for size of airport.

Yangon Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Domestic terminal - a third world airport. Packed with numerous flights leaving at virtually the same time. Security lax to the point where passengers seemed to walk in terminal at will. No signage and difficult to determine which flights were boarding. However the basic and chaotic systems appear to work since flights leave on time and with the correct passengers on board. Arrival even more chaotic. Luggage is brought to door of terminal on trolly and left for passengers to collect. At the same time touts dressed in official looking airline shirts ask for baggage tickets to collect for passengers ad then demand a fee. Be warned - it s simple to collect baggage without paying anyone!

Yangon Airport customer review

What a difference this new terminal is to the old ill lit dusty previous building which now serves as Domestic. Arrivals via airbridge into a cool and gleaming marble and carpeted arrivals area first through Passport and Visa control now very efficient and with a smile. Quick luggage off carousel and then again a simple flow through Customs. Small Duty Free on arrival shop and large greeting area with lots of room to push the luggage trolly's outside Departing Uniformed porters unload your luggage and escort you through to check inafter passing the first security and x-ray machine. With Thai you can pay your $10 departure tax to the airline but if not there is a Departure Tax desk were you can pay it and get a receipt. Tip porter $1or1000chat. Then after check in you go upstairs on the escalator to Passport/Visa control into a large concourse with bar restaurant coffee shop loads of decent shops and an Airline Lounge. Further security check/x-ray machines and Customs desk at each gate. Good signs and announcements and a good overall experience-you would not know you are in the Third World. All they have to do now is sort out Domestic.
