Revision of air servicesBhutanese airlines can now exercise third and fourth freedom traffic rights and fifth freedom traffic rights with the revision of the air services agreement between Bhutan and Myanmar.

The agreement to this effect between the two countries was signed in Thimphu recently.
The designated Bhutanese airline or airlines will have the right to operate its flight to additional routes from Myanmar to Singapore or Malaysia. Also the government can now designate Tashi Air as the second airline from Bhutan.


The first air services agreement between the two countries was signed in August 2002.
Director of the civil aviation authority, Wangdi Gyaltshen, said the Bhutanese government considers the agreement as a clear indication of the importance given by the Myanmar government to enhance bilateral cooperation in the aviation sector.

With many holy Buddhist sites in Myanmar, Bhutanese pilgrims are expected to explore Myanmar as a destination. The agreement is also expected to promote trade between the two countries.


The delegation from Myanmar was led by the director general of the country’s civil aviation department, Min Lwin.

The designated airlines will have the right to operate passenger and cargo services with unrestricted capacity, frequency and aircraft type to and from all points in Myanmar other than Yangon and up to a total of five services each way per week to and from Yangon.


The designated Bhutanese airline will have the right to exercise the fifth freedom traffic rights, in each direction on the routes specified, at five freely selected intermediate points and five freely selected beyond points with exception of some sectors. The Yangon-Gaya and vice versa (VV), Mandalay-Gaya and VV, Yangon-Bangkok and VV, Yangon-Singapore and VV and Yangon-Kuala Lumpur and VV sectors have received the exception.
