Relief flights to and from Myanmar permitted to resume

Relief flights to and from Yangon International Airport have been permitted to resume, according to several foreign embassies in Yangon.

Relief flights to and from Yangon and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will resume three times a week from February 3. The flights had been suspended due to the temporary closure of Yangon International Airport since a state of emergency was declared in Myanmar on February 1.

In addition, domestic flights and international relief flights on Myanmar National Airlines will resume as scheduled on February 4 for the convenience of travelers during COVID-19. International commercial flights remain suspended due to the pandemic.

A Myanmar Notice to Airmen had been issued to all pilots on February 1 revoking permission to land and take off from Myanmar, including all domestic and international relief flights. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 central committee said on February 2 that it will expedite its relief missions and deploy more relief flights as well as vessel trips so that Myanmar citizens staying abroad either legally or illegally are able to return to the country.
