New Myanmar Airline Flights to Chiang Mai and Mae Sot
This year, the Myanmar carrier is planning its first ever set of routs to the north Thai cities, where many of Burma's immigrants are living. ANGOON - Burma's Air Kanbawza (Air KBZ) is planning to open its first ever global flights to Mae Sot and Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand this year, says a chief flight officer.
Said the company would enter into a code-sharing contract with Mann Yadanarpon Airlines, another Burma based company, to allow them to buy seats on the same game. It has a large Myanmar community and welcomes many people from Burma. Currently only one Myanmar airlines, Air Bagan, which belongs to the Tay Za Tay Company, flies from Rangoon to the town.
The price of tickets for KBZ flights has not yet been approved, said the managing director of the company. The General Managers added that the flight from Rangoon to Mae Sot will be operated by the KBZ five times a week from October 27. Said the company would work with Thailand's low-cost carriers Nok Airlines, which recently ceased operating the same service on its own.
There is no other Burma carrier currently flying to Mae Sot, a frontier city where many of Burma's immigrants are living. You can take a coach from the frontier city to Rangoon via Myawaddy in Karen State. "From Mae Sot, many people from Burma return to Rangoon every single night. Both lines will be served by 68-seater ATR-72 aircraft.
It is planning to buy one new plane this months and another in January next year. At present it runs 16 German flights with six airplanes. Air KBZ is owned by Kanbawza Banka, part of the commercial realm of Aung Ko Win company Typcoon. In addition, the EBRD holds 80 per cent of the shares in Myanmar Airways Int'l (MAI), the country's leading global airlines.
Yadanarpon became the latest operative step into Burma's growing overcrowded aviation sector in February. It currently operates scheduled flights to Rangoon, Mandalay, Nyaung U, Heho, Kengtung, Tachileik and Myitkyina. In Mandalay the air company became the 8th local air company in Burma.
