Golden Myanmar Airlines plots fresh international routes
Sid Dhartha, Yangon, October 10, 2014

GOLDEN Myanmar Airlines is continuing to expand its international network, having launched thrice-weekly flights to its third international destination, Chiang Mai, last week on Airbus A320s.


Golden’s scheduled launch of Mandalay-Imphal flights for June 27 were postponed due to discussion delays with Indian company KB Enterprises and the Department of Civil Aviation India, said the airline’s managing director, Aung Gyi.


“Plans are underway as Golden Myanmar Airlines and KB are preparing to issue visas on arrival for Myanmar passengers,” he explained.


The airline is also aiming to start routes to Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur in the near future.


Golden Myanmar Airlines began operations in 2013 and currently flies internationally to Bangkok and Singapore, as well as 11 destinations domestically.


On October 4 it began flying Yangon-Thandwe, and will add three more services to southern Myanmar, namely Kyaing Tong, Kentung and Myeik.

REgarding the \"three\" more services to \"southern\" Myanmar: Aren\'t Kyaing Tong and Kentung two ways of spelling the same city in Shan State? And is it truly in southern Myanmar? It seems to be solidly int he mid portion of the country.
