Myanmar Airways to fly to UAE by 2015

Reading Time: 2 minutes

MAIMyanmar Airways International (MAI) said it will launch its first flight to the United Arab Emirates in 2015, Eleven Myanmar reported.

“We have no arrangements to fly to UAE during this year. MAI is arranging the flights to UAE in 2015 to get market share from Europe,” MAI’s marketing and public relations manager Aye Maya Thar said.

Before the agreement, which was signed on March 10, Myanmar and the UAE had no prior aviation treaty between them.  In the new treaty, Myanmar lists MAI as an airline with permission to fly to UAE and UAE carriers Emirates, RAK Airways (currently not operational), Air Arabia and Aerovista Airlines for flights to Myanmar.

“There were no restrictions in the treaty. Myanmar Airways can land in every international airport in the UAE,” said Director General Tin Naing Tun from the Department for Civil Aviation.

Some countries that have signed aviation treaties with Myanmar have modified their agreements or signed new treaties since 2010. The main reason for modifying the treaty is to change to multiple destination status instead of single destinations.

Due to a new aviation treaty between Myanmar and Japan signed in February this year, Myanmar Airways have been allowed to fly to Narita airport for the first time. Myanmar has signed aviation treaties with 46 countries including the US, Israel and European countries, in addition to neighbouring countries. The country’s first aviation treaty, with the US, was signed in 1949.

Currently, the online direct connection between Yangon and the Gulf region is on Qatar Airways, a flight launched in 2012.
