More airlines have announced plans to start regional services, or add capacity to Yangon during this winter schedule.

From 28 October, Singapore Airlines will take over seven weekly flights from its subsidiary Silk Air, which is operating 16 flights a week. The moves means SQ can use a bigger aircraft to increase capacity in response to passenger demand.

SQ flights will use a 323-seat Boeing 777-200 replacing the 142-seat A320 of Silk Air. It increases weekly seat capacity by 55% for the airline.

Also from 28 October, China Airlines will increase its five-weekly flights between Taipei and Yangon to daily.

Dragonair will launch a four weekly service from Hong Kong, 9 January 2013, using an Airbus A321 aircraft.

Myanmar’s national carrier, Myanmar Airways International, also plans to commence a service to Hong Kong this December, mainly to tap investor interest which is prompting more business travel to Myanmar.

Other airlines that resumed or started new services to Yangon include Korean Air (13 September); Qatar Airways (4 October); EVA Air (9 October) and All Nippon Airways (15 October).

Previously, travelers had to fly to Bangkok or Singapore to connect with airlines serving Yangon.
