Information about Myanmar Airways International
Myanmar Airways International
Myanmar's original and only national airline was called Union of Burma Airways and began operations in the 1950's when the country was still known as Burma. In the early 70's it was renamed Burma Airways Corporation and continued services under this name until 1988, when Burma was officially renamed Myanmar and the airline was renamed Myanma Airways.
Myanmar Airways International (MAI) took off in August 1993, created by a joint venture between Myanma Airways and Singapore interests with the support of Royal Brunei Airlines.
With a new Singapore management team (many ex-Singapore Airlines staff), new Boeing aircraft with all expatriate cockpit crew, better-trained flight attendants and new UK Civil Aviation Authority operating standards, this was the beginning of a successful new era for our national airline. Meanwhile, Myanma Airways continued operations as a purely domestic carrier for the local population.
MAI became the international airline of Myanmar with regular flights between Yangon, (the capital of Myanmar) Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kunming, Dacca and Jakarta. MAI continued to develop regionally.
In the original joint venture was terminated and MAI became a wholly owned Myanmar company owned by Myanmar Airways. MAI's potential continued to attract investors and in January 2001, a new joint venture was formed in which Region Air Myanmar (HK) Ltd., took a strategic 49% stake and a local businessman through his company Zan Co. took a 11% share and Myanmar Airways retained 40%.
Our aircraft are currently operated by Orion Air Pte. Ltd. A Singapore based company with an internationally experienced team of skilled aviation personnel.
