Royal Jade Lounge-Worst lounge experience!

by web-administrator (October, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Burmese girl) Our overall experience in the airport was fine, but the woman at the Royal Jade Lounge was so rude! The ticketing agent forgot to give us passes to the lounge, so she denied us entry even though we had our business class tickets with us. She said we had to go back down (through security again and we had luggage) and get it. We asked her if she could call downstairs since we were just there? She didn't even bat an eyelash and said no, you have to go back down. There was a young man next to her so I asked if he could go (since we were tired, and honestly who would want to go through airport security and all that twice?) for us. She sent him down and proceeded to complain about us in Burmese to the man next to her. Before the man came back we already decided to go to the other lounge since we are priority pass members. We understand Burmese, and it was so rude and nasty. She shouldn't be working there. I have had only the best service in the lounges at airports and was so annoyed by the whole situation. As soon as the guy came back we left, and I'm glad we did because the other lounge was so much nicer--they had foot and leg massage chairs, better food and service!

Yangon airport

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Kevina from Hong Kong) Hey all airportsurfing buddies ;) So I slept in this airport for a night at the beginning of April, 2016. One of the main reason for me to do it was because there was only one short review here and I wanted to contribute a personal experience sharing ;) So overall my experience was ok! tiny but VERY safe! Not that comfortable though... hard bench chairs and there was 'gap' in between the benches.......... so it was quite tough (I use cardboard to slip between it lol) Air conditioned was not that good... and please MUST bring your mosquitoes repellent very small... But it's free! What else should we expect? Have a nice trip! Review By Kevina from Hong Kong ;)

New terminal to open in March 2016

by efsch (February, 2016)


Reason for Stay: Checking in and had to wait
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: Quiet, friendly, clean -- and new terminal to open March 2016
Cons: No info re new terminal


I had a few flights in and out of the RGN international and domestic terminals in Feb-Mar 2016. However, I departed the country just before the new international terminal was scheduled to open in late March 2016 (the old international terminal will become domestic, and the old domestic terminal will be torn down). I have no info regarding the new terminal, just a little advice. E-visas bought online in advance (about 50 USD) make entry into the country easy. Immigration was quick and efficient. ATMs at the airport arrival hall worked fine (I gave my US bank a travel notice first) but they now charge 6,500 kyat ('chat')per transaction (about 5 USD). Local money changers also gave good rates for super-clean=new USD cash, in case your ATM card does not work. See Oanda.com for current MMK exchange rates. On arrival there is good and cheap taxi service to the city center (30-60 minutes, depending on traffic, late night is fastest). There is a taxi dispatcher desk which will write down your destination and set the price (about 10 USD = 12,000 kyat to the very center, about 8 USD = 10,000 kyat to the stadium/central train station in February 2016). Domestic flights were frequent and had a common waiting area with each flight called as it was ready to board, all from the same exit. This also may improve in March 2016. The international terminal was almost empty after 9pm (only three later flights) but it was quiet and easy to sleep for a few hours. Almost no concessions were open. This also may improve in March 2016. I felt very safe in the airport (and the entire country). People were all very helpful and friendly. Bon voyage!

(Guest Review by Jess) If you need to store your luggage you can do so at the information desk located in international arrivals Hall. For 2000kyets/1,5 they will keep your bag for you.

Open all night now

by web-administrator (November, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) It is now possible to sleep in this airport, since it does not close anymore over the night. There are hard metal benches everywhere that you can easily sleep on. The only two food sources close at around 8pm, so bringing snacks for the night is advisable.
