The three 50-seat turboprops from China will replace its five existing Fokker aircraft.

An airline spokesperson said: “We are planning to provide better services for passengers with new aircraft… to meet international standards.”

The spokesperson added that the airline planned to fly to regional destinations “in the near future” after a 17-year hiatus but did not elaborate.

Myanma Airways stopped international services on August 15, 1993 following the establishment of Myanmar Airways International, which it has a 20 per cent stake in.

Current flights to 26 domestic destinations are serviced by eight aircraft – two ATR-72s, one ATR-42, three Fokker F-28s and two Fokker F-27s.
