Tourism players anticipating a string of new flights for improving inbound tourism in Myanmar

Published on : Thursday, November 14, 2019

Tourism players are anticipating a string of new flights to boost inbound tourism in Myanmar.

 

A number of airlines in the recent months have started operating new routes connecting China with Myanmar, and various international airlines have also announced flights in the offing. Chinese destinations include new routes to Hangzhou, Shanghai and Wuhan.

 

Last month, IndiGo Airlines started daily direct flights from Kolkata to Yangon. Last year, Indian passport holders were granted visa-on-arrivals (VoAs) for boosting interest in Myanmar.

 

From December 10, 2019, flydubai will also launch daily flights from Dubai to Yangon and the Thai island of Krabi, which is operated via a stop in Yangon in Myanmar.

 

The new direct flights to Yangon International Airport will provide passengers with easier access to Myanmar.

 

Khiri Travel Myanmar’s managing director Edwin Briels said: “International flights will always help to boost tourism greatly.” “Clients visiting the Thai beaches can easily combine their trip with a culture experience in Myanmar,” he added.

 

Sammy Samuels, managing director of Myanmar Shalom Travels, said that the opening of new routes by flydubai and Indigo Airlines offers reasonably priced access to Myanmar.

 

With 10 airlines now flying between Myanmar and about 15 different Chinese destinations, it is expected that the industry can tap into the high-end segment.
