Yangon Airport Iata Code – RGN
RGN is the 3 letters alphabetical code assign for the airport. Yangon International Airport is an international airport. It is located at Mingaladon, 15 kilometers (9.3 mi) north of central Yangon, Myanmar.
During World War II, the airfield was called RAF Mingaladon and served as an operating base for fighter aircraft. Mingaladon was then used by the Japanese, and Japanese bombers based in Bangkok were moved forward to Mingaladon when there was a full moon. The British at the Wireless Experimental Centre in Delhi were breaking BULBUL the IJA air-to-ground code and could predict Japanese air raids. On one occasion Allied night fighters “got the lot and all night we could hear Mingaladon air base calling for its lost children”.
After World War II, Yangon Airport was built on the former RAF Mingaladon in 1947 by the Calcutta Metropolitan Airports Authority. Once regarded as the best in Southeast Asia and the primary airport serving that region, the airport fell into disrepair and remained that way for decades, as new superhubs like Singapore Changi Airport, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, and Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta were built and superseded Yangon’s facilities.
