The resumption of the flight services of Yangon Airways will resume next month after its receipt of the Aircraft Operation Certificate or AOC, the Yangon Airways told Xinhua Monday. Its flight service suspended since December last year was due to the absence of the certificate.
The source said that ticket booking was accepted Monday by sale agents. The source added that the airline will operate the flight with two ATR-72 aircraft to cover such domestic destinations as Yangon, Nyaung Oo, Mandalay, Heho, Kengtung, Tachileik, Dawei, Myeik, Kawthoung, Thandwe and Sittwe.
A joint venture between state-run Myanmar Airways (MA) and the Krong Sombat Co. Ltd. of Thailand in October 1995, Yangon Airways started its flight services in October 1996, using ATR-72 aircraft.
There are five domestic airlines in Myanmar and four are private-run. They are Air Mandalay, Yangon Airways, Air Bagan and Asian Wings. The fifth one is Myanmar Airways which is state-owned.
The Myanmar Airways International (MAI) is another Myanmar airline which flies solely to some foreign destinations.
The 13 foreign airlines flying Yangon are as follows: Thai Airways International, Indian Airlines, Air Asia Barhad’s, Silk Air, Malaysian Airlines, Bangkok Airways, Jetstar Asia, Thai Air Asia, Vietnam Airlines, China Airlines, Air China, China Southern Airline and China Eastern Airlines.
