Singapore Airlines To Fly To Yangon

Singapore Airlines will launch daily services to Yangon on 28 October 2012 to cater to rapidly growing demand for travel to Myanmar. Together with regional subsidiary SilkAir, the SIA Group will serve Yangon with 16 weekly flights.

SilkAir currently operates 16 weekly flights to Yangon with single-aisle Airbus A320-family aircraft. SIA will take over seven of those flights with larger 323-seat Boeing 777-200 widebody aircraft, increasing weekly seat capacity by 55%.

?Demand has been growing strongly for both business and leisure travel to Myanmar, and Singapore Airlines looks forward to serving the country for the first time,? said SIA Executive Vice President Commercial, Mr Mak Swee Wah, who is also Chairman of SilkAir.

?SIA and SilkAir are constantly looking at new market opportunities and the launch of SIA services enables us to quickly meet the growing demand for travel to this increasingly popular destination.?

Yangon is the largest city in Myanmar and it once served as the country?s capital. Today it serves as Myanmar?s economic centre, in addition to being a popular tourist destination.

The flights are subject to government approvals. Details of proposed flight numbers and flight schedules can be found in the table below :-
