MYANMAR Airways International (MAI) has outlined a four-year expansion in light of political changes in the country, which it expects will result in tourism growth.

MAI managing director Aung Gyi said: “The changing government – from military to civilian – has sent a positive message not only to tourists but investors and businessmen. We are expecting the number of visitors to Myanmar to grow. In line with this, we have set up a four-year expansion plan. We are planning to add up to 10 more aircraft to our fleet, and are looking at investing in the Airbus A330.”

This would enable MAI to expand its route network in ASEAN and China, he said, in terms of both point-to-point services and sixth freedom traffic.

Aung said: “We are considering extending services to Indonesia on our Yangon-Singapore current service, for example.”
