A new international terminal at Yangon airport is scheduled to open next week, with some flights to be moved to the new facilities, relieving strained capacity at the country’s main international gateway.
Once complete, the new building will be able to handle 6 million passengers a year, more than double the airport’s current capacity of 2.7 million.
A spokesperson for Asia World Group, whose subsidiary Pioneer Aero-drome Services is building the new terminal, said the opening date is set for March 12, the Myanmar Times reported on Friday.
