Air KBZ to resume Myeik, Sittwe flights

Air KBZ will resume flights to Myeik and Sittwe from May 1 onwards.

The airline had suspended flights to Myeik for three years and to Sittwe for one. It will now resume flights on these routes on the back of higher demand.

Domestic tour operators confirmed that the number of local visitors to Mergui Archipelago and Rakhine has increased over the recent summer vacation months.

“Of late, demand for flights to these two destinations has increased. There are a lot more local and foreign tourists wanting to visit the Myeik islands in particular so we have reopened flights to meet market demand,” a spokesperson from Air KBZ said.

Flights to Myeik from Yangon will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and on weekends, while flights to Sittwe from Yangon will run daily, the airline said.

To leverage on higher demand over the summer months from March to May, Air KBZ last month also announced discounted fares of up to 20 percent for local travelers to Heho, Nyaung-U, Myitkyina, Loikaw, Nay Pyi Taw and Dawei, and Nyaung-U based flights to Heho, Mandalay, Thandwe, Dawei and Kawthaung.

During the rainy season, some airlines also operate flights in partnership with others to draw more passengers and air ticket prices are sometimes also reduced to encourage air travel.
