Mae Sot Airport (Thai: ท่าอากาศยานแม่สอด) (IATA: MAQ, ICAO: VTPM) is an international airport serving Mae Sot, a town in Tak Province in Thailand. Currently, it is connected to two domestic destinations. Nok Air started the first international commercial operations from Mae Sot to Yangon in October 2017, but service to Yangon stopped in January 2018. Wisdom Airlines started with a 12 seater Cessna Grand Caravan a bi weekly return flight to Chiang Mai international airport from Mae Sot (Mondays and Saturdays).

A new passengers terminal opened April 4, 2019. It will serve 1,7 million passengers / year, instead of 170,000 with the old terminal.[3]

The expansion of Mae Sot's runway is to be complete in 2019.[4] Thai AirAsia will add the Mae Sot destination soon after Mae Sot's runway expansion is complete and suitable for its Airbus A320 aircraft.[5]
