Fly to Myanmar | Myanmar
Burma is serviced by a number of world-class operators using state-of-the-art aircrafts such as the Airbus A380 and Boeing Dreamliner. Airline companies such as Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Vietnam Airways and Thai Airways provide good London-Yangon services via their Far East hub with restricted services to Mandalay.
British Airways can also operate direct flights to Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong or Kuala Lumpur and continue to Myanmar with a domestic carrier such as Bangkok Airways. You can stop at any of the above mentioned carriers and use Myanmar in combination with Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore or Hong Kong.
The Emirates and Qatar Airways also operate to Myanmar via their Gulf crossings and provide the best links to Myanmar alongside Heathrow and Gatwick if you are nearer to their UK local airfields such as Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Newcastle. Another interesting way to connect Thailand and Myanmar is the four daily Bangkok Airways service between Chiang Mai and Mandalay.
Bringing Your Drone On Airplanes Guide
Click here for details on how to get your UAV on board an aircraft. If possible, all UAVs should be carried in hand baggage. Alternatively, if your UAV is over $1,000 and you can't take it on the airplane, you should ship it with DHL, Fedex or UPS and fully insured.
Do not place UAVs in your hold luggage. Dronebatteries should be placed in a medium sized lipo-battery pocket, as shown in this picture (non-mazon users can buy the lipo-battery pocket directly from us by clicking here).
They are classified by carriers as "dangerous goods" and the regulations that surround these cells in airplanes are very stringent because these cells have caught fire several times. If you do not correctly package lithium-ion battery in a case such as the one shown in the above links, the carrier may confiscate it, impose a fine on you or refuse to carry it.
