Myanmar National Airlines suspends flights to Phuket
Myanmar Airlines has made the executive decision to suspend flights between Phuket and Yangon from June until August. According to the company, this is due to low traffic during tourist "low season". The twice-weekly service, which comprised one flight each way on Fridays and Sundays will continue as usual from the beginning of September onwards. Arrangements are already in place for any passengers who had booked themselves on the cancelled flights with MNA. The airline is still focussed on blazing the tourist trail from Myanmar to Thailand.

Myanmar National, Mann Yadanarpon to join forces in Myanmar
Myanmar National Airlines (UB, Yangon) and Mann Yadanarpon Airlines (7Y, Yangon) have entered into a partnership which will see the carriers cooperate on domestic services in Myanmar under the new brand Myanmar Sky Alliances, the Myanmar Times has reported.
The new partnership is set to enter into force on mayo 10. The combined network under the Myanmar Sky Alliances brand will include 13 destinations. Each of the airlines will provide two ATR72-600s for the operation. For Mann Yadanarpon Airlines, this would mean assigning the carrier's entire fleet to Myanmar Sky Alliances.
For its part, MNA will still have four ATR 72-600s, one each of ATR 72-200 and ATR 72-500, four B737-800s, and two EMB-190s for its operations.
The main bases for the cooperation will most likely be Yangon, Mandalay Int'l, Heho, and Naypyitaw.
The cooperation can be seen as a sign of the impending consolidation of the Myanmarese market. Following the opening up of the country's economy a few years ago, there are currently eight active scheduled airlines in the country, many of them operating a small fleet of aircraft on domestic routes. It is recalled that AirAsia Group has recently said it is interested in entering Myanmar through a joint-venture with an existing carrier. Mark Turner, Chief Commercial Officer of FMI Air (ND, Yangon), has also told ch-aviation that the market needs consolidation.

Myanmar National Airlines and Mann Yadanarpon Airlines start operating joint service this month
Myanmar National Airlines and Mann Yadanarpon Airlines have signed an agreement to start a new joint operation under the name 'Myanmar Sky Alliances' that will serve domestic flights. The joint operation will connect 13 destinations and offer additional flights to both of their respective schedules. Each airline will supply two aircraft and the operation will start on mayo 10.
There are currently 11 airlines in Myanmar and the decision to create a joint service could be due to the belief that Myanmar air travel is an oversaturated market. Transport minister U Thant Sin Maung said that Myanmar should have four airlines, as the majority of other ASEAN countires have somewhere between four and six.
Good news for Myanmar National Airlines! Myanmar creates new destinations to attract tourists.
El Ministerio de Hoteles y Turismo de Myanmar se esfuerza por fomentar el turismo mediante el desarrollo de nuevas vías de programas turísticos y la creación de nuevos destinos turísticos. El ministerio ha permitido que aproximadamente 1,628 hoteles y casas de huéspedes con 65,470 habitaciones funcionen a partir del marzo 31, informe oficial de Global New Light of Myanmar. A partir de diciembre 2017, el ministerio también había otorgado más de 2,676 agencias de viajes, emitiendo 4,503 licencias de guías de viaje, 3,449 licencias de guías turísticos regionales y 2,564 licencias de transporte. El ministerio también se esfuerza por promover el ecoturismo, el turismo cultural y el turismo comunitario en áreas ricas en recursos, que incluyen paisajes históricos, ríos, lagos, playas, islas y bosques.
Foreign tourists visit Myanmar mostly through three international airports, the border checkpoints as well as via luxury cruise liners. Therefore, Myanmar based airlines, such as Myanmar National Airlines, can expect to reap the consequences of international passengers on flights.
