Mae Fah Luang - Chiang Rai International Airport (IATA: CEI, ICAO: VTCT) is located in the city of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand.

The airport is located about 10km from the city centre. Since 1998 it has been managed by the Airports of Thailand Public Company Limited (AOT).

Access to the airport is available from an access road linking the airport with Phahonyothin Road (Superhighway), which leads southbound to the city centre, Chiang Mai, Bus Terminal II and all the way to Bangkok and northbound to Mae Chan, Mae Sai and the Thai-Myanmar border.

A new road (Vhiangburapha Road) which can be accessed by turning left upon exiting the airport also leads southbound to the city centre and is a less congested route, as it is not used by intercity buses heading north. The road joins up with Phahonyothin Road via Pao Khun Road which passes Chiang Rai Provincial Stadium.

The airport handles over 500,000 passengers, 3,900 flights and 2,700 tons of cargo every year.

It consists of a single passenger terminal which features a Dairy Queen outlet as well as a Black Canyon Coffee, with both the international and domestic arrivals and departures handled on the same floor but in separate areas.

Although the airport is named Chiang Rai International Airport, and even though its facilities are capable of handling international flights, it is yet to be served by any international routes. The airport does however handle immigration from THAI flights with international connections to/from Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi.
