Bangkok Airways to become the first foreign carrier to Nay Pyi Taw


Providing non-stop service from Bangkok

Bangkok Airways recently announced its latest expansion to Myanmar by offering non-stop flights from Bangkok to Nay Pyi Taw, the capital city of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. Commencing on 30 September 2013, the airline will be the first scheduled foreign air carrier to service this route and the only Thai airline that serves all three main cities of Myanmar.

Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, Bangkok Airways’ President said, “It has long been our plan to cover the three key cities of Myanmar by the end of this September. The first city was Yangon where Bangkok Airways has been offering 3 daily flights from Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi Airport) and soon to be 4 flights per day starting from 27 October 2013. Secondly, Mandalay service will commence on 15 September 2013 offering 4 non-stop flights per week. Lastly, the capital city of Myanmar – Nay Pyi Taw, from 30 September 2013 with 3 non-stop flights per week.”

Puttipong continues, “We consider this to be a major milestone for us … We anticipate that the majority of our passengers on the direct Bangkok – Nay Pyi Taw flights will be businessmen and government officials.  The other two routes will most likely be mainly tourists. We are confident that with our strong reputation of offering a boutique flying experience for our passengers, Bangkok Airways will become a leading player in this market.”
