In the past, Myanmar workers were despatched to Thailand through the Yangon-Myawady route and Yangon-Kawthoung-Ranong route, which made them tired, and because of it, officials of the two countries made an agreement on using air travel through negotiations, said an official from MOEAF.
“Air travel is used for despatch of workers to other countries, except Thailand. So, sending them through border routes exhausted them because, geographically, the land is quite wide. For example, it takes overnight to go to Yangon from Rakhine, overnight again from Yangon to Myawady, and from there, it takes overnight again to go to Mae Sot, so they have to spend three nights along the journey. But they can arrive within a short time by plane, and the tiresome journey will be eased. For it, the two countries had negotiations and now reached agreement,” he said. — MT/ZS/ED
