MNA plans to fly commercial flights to Thailand, Singapore

Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) is planning to fly to Bangkok, Thailand and Singapore once international commercial flight operations are allowed to resume.

Discussions between Myanmar’s Directorate of Civil Aviation (DCA) and their international counterparts are now underway to permit international commercial flight operations to resume on
January 1, 2021. In order for flights to resume, bilateral standard operating procedures and quarantine specifications will need to be agreed upon and rolled out.

Bangkok and Singapore are most likely to be MNA’s first destinations once the airline is given the green light to take off internationally, said Naing Saw Lwin, business section head of MNA.
However, he said an official letter announcing the resumption of international flights on January 1 has not been issued at this point.

He added that flights to China will not be possible under the current situation, but provided no further details. Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, there were over 10 China-based airlines operating several daily flights to and from Myanmar.

All commercial flights have been prohibited from landing in Myanmar since April to prevent imported cases of COVID-19 into Myanmar. Since then, only international relief and cargo flights
have been permitted to land.

International commercial flights will continue to be suspended until December 31, after which the authorities are widely anticipated to announce a resumption of such flights.

The government on December 16 allowed domestic flights to resume provided airlines and passengers comply with a slew of COVID-19 restrictions and health precautions.
