The MNA flies first international route with new Boeing 737-800
Burma National Airlines (MNA), the flagship of the nation, has won its first Boeing 737-800, part of the shipment of ten merchant aircraft that MNA ordered last year in a multi-million dollars deal to revive its mark. MNA' s new aircraft will connect MNA's 26 home bases with an extended global reach, beginning with the start of the first global service (Yangon-Singapore) in August this year and growth to four more Asian-Pacific towns by early 2016, MNA said.
737-800 was rented from GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), GE's business jet lease business. "Our new 737 will allow us to extend our global market reach and provide a better passenger experience," said MNA' s Chief Executive Officer Mr. MNA. The MNA predicts that the new plane will provide more employment, more tourists and more investments for both the company and the state.
"These new planes will give more passengers the chance to explore our land by offering smooth travel to our 26 local airports - most of the country's airlines," said Suzanne. MNA will try to follow the example of multinational carriers and be able to compete with other locallines.
Mr U Than Tun said that an initial $600 million invested last year contributed to reversing the operation of MNA. 737-800 is the best-selling variant of the Boeing 737 series, one of the most technically sophisticated aircraft on the single-aisle aircraft segment. Six De Havilland Tove aircraft were used to fly to 19 different destinations, and in 1950 services to Bangkok, Calcutta and Chittagong were opened.
1989 the company was re-named Myanma Airways. MNA will introduce its new trademark throughout the entire vehicle range and offer new service offerings in complement to the existing range of aircrafts. It has recently set up a computerized reservation and departures controls system and a new website for online reservation, check-in and passenger-select.
