Two airlines end direct flights to Myanmar

Reading Time: 1 minute

CondorTwo airlines that only recently started direct flights to Myanmar have cancelled their routes due to having few passengers.

Germany-based Condor Airline and Thai-based Business Air stopped their direct flights to Myanmar in 2014.

“The reason for cancelling direct flights is having very few passengers so it does not work financially,” said a spokesperson from Myanmar’s Department of Civil Aviation.

In 2012 alone, seven new airlines began flying directly to Myanmar, bringing the number from 15 to 22, pushing the capacity of the one-runway Yangon International Airport to the limit.

These included All Nippon Airways, Qatar Airways, EVA Airways from Taiwan, Korean Air and Asiana from Korea, Condor Airlines from Germany and Singapore Airlines.

Three more airlines began to fly directly to Myanmar in 2013 included Thai-based Nok Air and Business Air Airline, as well as Tiger Air from Singapore.

Apart from Condor Airline and Business Air Airline, no others have cancelled their flights to Myanmar in 2014.
