Bangkok Airways to start Chiang Mai based Yangon-Mandalay route PDF Print E-mail

BANGKOK Airways is planning to launch ATR 72 services from Chiang Mai to both Mandalay and Yangon in late October this year, according to Centre for Aviation
It will give Bangkok Airways five routes to Myanmar as Bangkok Airways has already become the largest foreign carrier in Myanmar, with three routes and 40 weekly frequencies.
Opportunities in the fast growing Thailand-Myanmar market are the main driver of the carrier’s decision to open a turboprop base at Chiang Mai and increase the number of turboprops in its fleet plan.

Mandalay will initially be served with three weekly flights and Yangon with four weekly flights but Bangkok Airways is confident both markets will grow and eventually be able to support more frequencies.

Other secondary routes between Thailand and Myanmar are likely to follow as passenger traffic between the neighbouring countries is growing rapidly and is likely to accelerate after the current visa requirements are lifted.
Myanmar and Thailand announced in late 2013 the lifting of visa requirements. Implementation has since been delayed, likely due to the political upheaval in Thailand, but is still expected.
Bangkok Airways currently offers almost 11,000 weekly seats to and from Myanmar, making it the largest carrier in Myanmar’s international market with about a 10pc share of total seat capacity.

Bangkok Airways has roughly doubled its capacity to Myanmar over the past year as it added a fourth daily flight on Bangkok-Yangon and launched services from Bangkok to Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw. Capacity is slated to increase by about another 18pc in late Oct-2014 as Bangkok Airways adds a fifth daily flight on Bangkok-Yangon and launches Chiang Mai-Yangon and Chiang Mai-Mandalay.

Bangkok-Mandalay and Bangkok-Nay Pyi Taw for now is slated to continue to be served with seven and five weekly frequencies respectively. Bangkok-Mandalay is served with A319s while Bangkok-Nay Pyi Taw is generally served with ATR 72s but A319s have been used during peak periods.
Bangkok Airways will have about 13,000 weekly seats in Myanmar in Nov-2014, accounting for 25 pc f the carrier’s total international seat capacity.
