New Naypyidaw Airport to ‘Handle 10.5 Million People a Year’

The Irrawaddy News (Weekly Business Roundup May 1, 2009)

The new airport being built in Burma’s capital of Naypyidaw will eventually be able to handle more than 10 million passengers per year, according to an industry report.

The airport is being built in three stages by the Burmese company Asia World, whose boss, Tun Myint Naing, also known as Steven Law, is on a U.S. sanctions list because of his close connections with the country’s military leaders.

The first-phase construction will have a capacity of 3.5 million passengers per year and is due to be completed in mid-2011, according to the airport construction industry Web site passengerterminaltoday.com.

The Web site quoted Singapore-based CPG Consultants for the figures, and said CPG designed the new airport.

After all three construction phases are completed, the airport will be able to handle 10.5 million passengers a year, according to the Web site. It did not give a date for the final completion.

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.

Meanwhile work is due to start on a giant new airport in Bago Region, which was first imagined in the early 1990s. The US$1.4 billion project is slated for completion in 2022 and will be built by Singapore’s Yongham Holdings, Changi Airport Planners and Engineers, and Japan’s JGC Corporation.

The airport will become Myanmar’s largest, with the capacity to handle up to 12 million passengers a year.

Asia World Group has opened the first phase of a new airport terminal in Yangon that will be capable of handing up to 20 million passengers a year when complete, with US fast-food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken the first international restaurant confirmed to open in the new space.

Myanmar Airways International, the recently rebranded national carrier, will be the first to move into the new terminal, officials said, with the airline’s maiden departure scheduled for March 20. Yangon’s existing international terminal, which is also managed by Asia World Group, will be rebranded as Terminal 2. Work on a new domestic terminal has already begun and plans are being drawn up for an “airport city” comprising a cultural centre, hotels, commercial and retail space.



<snip>

Around 88pc of flights into Myanmar land in Yangon. The airport has seen passenger numbers rise from 1.99 million in 2010 to 4.68 million in 2015, according to literature distributed by YACL. Weekly international flights from Yangon increased 3.88 times between 2010 and 2015. Twenty-eight international airlines now fly into Yangon and several more have confirmed new routes – Emirates Airlines, for example, will begin daily flights to Dubai in August and Hong Kong Express will launch flights later this year.

<snip>

A tender has been called for the 7800 square metres of retail space with 50 retail outlets, and 3400 sq m of space across 16 restaurants. KFC has already set up its restaurant on the airport’s ground floor, and plans to open from the end of this month, said Mr Abidin.

All right. I've unified this thread and become a country aviation thread wherein you can post developments from around Myanmar (formerly Burma), especially that it is on the brink of joining ASEAN into the Single Aviation Market. This covers airports including:

- Rangoon (Yangon)
- Mandalay
- Naypyidaw

And other domestic airports found in this nation.
