flydubai Lands in Yangon

flydubai has launched its inaugural flight to Yangon, Myanmar, expanding its network to include Southeast Asia. The new daily flights are codeshared with Emirates and will operate from Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB).

On board the inaugural flight was a senior delegation led by Sudhir Sreedharan, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations (UAE, GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) at flydubai. On arrival in Yangon, the delegation was met by U Phyo Min Thein, Chief Minister of Yangon Region; Daw Nilar Kyaw, Minister of Electricity, Industry, Roads and Transport along with U Htun Myint Naing, Chairman of Asia World Group of Companies and Jose Angeja, COO of Yangon Aerodrome Company Limited.

Speaking at the inaugural event, Sreedharan said: “we are delighted to start our new daily service to Yangon, as we see flydubai’s network expand further East. We are confident that the new service will not only support the trade links between the UAE and Myanmar but also become a popular route for passengers travelling from the UAE and the GCC and for those connecting to Europe and the USA with Emirates. It’s a wonderful way to conclude our tenth year of operations.”

During his opening remarks at the event, Thein said: “Yangon International Airport plays an essential role in the tourism development of Myanmar. The airport is a gateway to international travel. We want to extend a warm welcome to flydubai's inaugural flight today and give thanks to developing our tourism sector, and secondly, recognizing Dubai as an international transit hub.”

“we are delighted to receive a new international airline, which will not only maintain a direct flight to Middle East - Dubai, as the main feeder of the European and American markets to Yangon, but also for adding a new route to Krabi (Thailand), increasing YIA’s connections portfolio, which will definitely increase the number of passengers and visitors to Myanmar, as well as promote tourism in this particular case, amongst the three regions.” “Myanmar is becoming a popular tourist destination, due to its pristine and untouched beaches, natural topography, deep culture and astounding Buddhist temples and monasteries,” Angeja added.
