Domestic Air Travel in Myanmar

There are now a number of domestic airlines operating in Myanmar. Although few in number and only fly to a handful of popular tourist destinations in Myanmar, they serve as a very convenient way of travel for tourists coming to Myanmar. Because of the inconveniences associated with land travel in Myanmar, air travel is the most comfortable and convenient mode of travel. For those foreign visitors coming to Myanmar, here are a few facts about domestic air travel in Myanmar.

Air tickets in Myanmar are quite expensive. One way ticket from Yangon to Bagan is around US$ 170 per person (although on the airlines’ website, they mention about internet booking at around half this price). This is quite expensive compared to domestic airfare in Thailand. Flights are only available to major tourist destinations (Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Heho / Inle, and a few others) , as only a handful of people use air travel in Myanmar due to high ticket price. Also you cannot book the ticket in real time. If you want to book online, you will have to submit your booking request ....... read more at Domestic Air Travel in Myanmar.
