Mandalay International Airport (MDL), Myanmar (Burma)

By on March 27, 2015 in Myanmar/Burma

Mandalay International Airport (MDL) is…. Interesting.

Very small airport with the check-in gates located post security, that is, you go pass the “passengers only” sign, have your luggage screened, and then check-in.

Once checked in, you go through immigration and into the departure terminal, which had a few shops and a couple of cafes.


To get to domestic departures you go through more security to a holding area where there are chairs, a small stall selling drinks, and a smoking room. No toilets.

Again there are no electronic status boards, and boarding is done by staff walking around calling out flight numbers and waving tickets.


Update: All the power went off at the airport and no one seemed concerned – emergency generators kicked in. Power outages do seem to be common in Myanmar.
