Myanmar Airways International (MAI) will launch its Yangon-Seoul direct flight this month, according to President and Chief Operating Officer Chanho Hong of Meebang Air Agencies.
The direct flight is the cooperation between the MAI and South Korea’s Meebang Air Agencies. MAI will fly four days a week on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturaday and Sunday. The flight is part of the cooperation to promote bilateral ties between the two countries.
It is expected that the flight will promote tourism between two countries. The direct flight is launched in part to increase in number of South Korean travellers to Myanmar.
“The hospitality of Myanmar people will attract South Korean travellers. And Myanmar has many cultural heritage buildings. I believe the direct flight service will help increase the tours between the two countries,’’ he said.
Launching outbound flights in 1993, the MAI currently operates flights Airbus A319s and A 320 from Yangon and Mandalay to Singapore, Bangkok, Kolkata, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Nanchang, Hefei and Fuzhou as well as charter flights to Bodh Gaya.
