Miri Airport Panorama, Malaysia

Miri Airport (IATA: MYY, ICAO: WBGR) is an airport located 9.5 km (5.9 mi) south east of Miri, a city in the Malaysian state of Sarawak. The airport is the sixth-busiest airport in Malaysia, and the second-busiest in Sarawak.

Miri Airport is a major hub for MASWings which took over most of the mainly rural domestic services from FlyAsianXpress. The location in the middle of Malaysian Borneo and close to the border of Brunei makes it a suitable hub for rural air services and an important gateway to Sarawak. In 2014, Miri Airport is the sixth-busiest airport in terms of aircraft movements and the sixth-busiest in terms of passengers handled, there were 2,363,080 passenger movements, and 49,204 aircraft movements in the airport.

Miri Airport used to be the second largest airport in Sarawak, after Kuching International Airport. However, the position was overtaken by Sibu Airport in July 2012 after the upgrading and expansion of Sibu Airport's terminal. Miri Airport is not recognised by Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) Malaysia and Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) as an international airport despite having scheduled international flights daily.
