Nay Pyi Taw, the country's third airport after Yangon and Mandalay, has a 3.6-kilometer long take-off and landing strip and can handle up to 65,000 air travel or around five million passen-gers a year.
It has been designed by Asia World with the support of Singapore based CPG Consultants. It was agreed not to disclose the costs of the scheme. Last weeks Ministry of Civil Aviation spokesman said that the focus is now on the expansion of Yangon International Airport, which can currently accommodate 2.7 million airlines a year.
A spokesman said that the airport's passenger volume will rise by around 40 per cent to 3.8 million when the airport extension is complete by the end of 2012 or the beginning of 2013. Myanmar's other airport is in Mandalay. The airport has a 4267-meter long take-off and landing strip and can accommodate up to three million people a year, but currently only draws frequent Kunming air traffic to China.
Yangon International Airport's sharp rise in the number of passengers has led the Chinese authorities to resume the Hantharwaddy airport near Bago, which has been closed down for more than a decennium.
