Myanma AirwaysState-run Myanma Airways is slated to be renamed as Myanmar National Airways upon the enactment of the new aviation legislation.

Presently, the Myanmar Aviation Bill has been submitted and deliberated in the Lower House of Parliament after the approval of the Upper House.

“The Bill has been approved by the Upper House and now submitted to the Lower House. If the Union parliament approves the bill, it will come into force. Only after the enactment of the law, the name of Myanma Airways will be changed into Myanmar National Airways. Its commercial charter will be modified,” said Than Tun, the managing-director of Myanmar Airways.

Myanmar Airlines has the contract to lease ten new Boeing aircraft from US-based GE Capital Aviation Services. After taking deliveries of the aircraft, international flights will be expanded.

The leasing deal was signed in Singapore on February 11.

With the government approval, the state-run airline plans to lease six Boeing 737-800 and four Boeing 737-8MAX. The aircraft would be delivered from June 2015 to 2020.
