Friendly and Personalised Yangon Airport Transfers

Yangon was formerly known as Rangoon and is the largest city in Myanmar. This unique place is an eclectic mix of British colonial architecture, traditional Buddhist pagodas and shimmering modern high-rises. One place you must see while in Yangon is the magnificent Shwedagon Paya, a pagoda complex that will leave you breathless. When it comes to travelling from the airport to downtown, the fastest and easiest way to travel is to take a Yangon airport taxi

From the moment you land in Yangon, your personal driver will be waiting for you, just outside of the arrivals hall. After a friendly greeting, your driver will help you carry your luggage to your pre-selected vehicle so you can swiftly begin your RGN airport shuttle ride. Even if your plane is delayed, your driver will receive a live alert which will ensure that they are there the moment you land. 

As you begin your Yangon airport transfer, your driver will answer any questions you may have about the city and will share with you a few must-see places that only the locals know about. With all your Yangon airport taxi needs taken care of by Welcome Pickups, all that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Directions for your RGN Airport Shuttle

Yangon International Airport (RGN), is the busiest airport in Myanmar. The airport is home to all 10 of the Mayanmar airlines and around 30 international airlines, making it a major transport hub. The airport is located around 16 km from downtown, so taking an RGN airport shuttle shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes to get there. 

After exiting the airport along Yangon Airport Rd, your driver will turn left onto Pyay Road, which you will follow for around 8 km. Then, you will continue on to the Hledan Traffic Light Skyway before passing back onto Pyay Road. You will then reach a roundabout, where your driver will take the 3rd exit onto U Wisara Road. After passing a second roundabout, you will take a right onto Shwedagon Pagoda Road and then a left at the 1st cross street onto Bo Gyoke Road. Finally, your driver will turn right onto 36th Street, which will lead you into the heart of downtown Yangon.

How much is a Yangon Airport Taxi?

The local Yangon airport taxi drivers don’t use taximeters to calculate your fare. They will decide on the cost of your journey depending on your destination in the city and your bartering skills. The average fare for an RGN airport shuttle to downtown is €7 (MMK 15,000), but if you’d prefer a set-rate fare you can rely on, we recommend booking your Yangon airport transfer in advance with Welcome Pickups.

Frequently asked questions

How can I calculate my Yangon airport taxi fare?
