Union Minister for Hotels and Tourism Dr Thet Thet Khine attended the launching of the maiden flight of Myanmar Airways International (MAI)’s Yangon-Mandalay-Novosibirsk route at Yangon International Airport yesterday morning.
At the opening ceremony, the deputy minister for Transport and Communications said that Myanmar and the Russian Federation signed an aviation transport agreement in 1970 in order to build a mutual aviation network. According to the agreement, Aeroflot Airlines from the Russian Federation operated direct flights between Yangon and Moscow from 1979 to 1992. Now, MAI revitalizes the aviation network by operating a direct flight between Yangon-Mandalay and Novosibirsk. The new flight can contribute to the tourism business, trade and investment activities between the two countries.
And then, the Union Minister visited the hotels and tourism information counter at the Yangon International Airport for domestic and foreign tourists to easily find out about Myanmar’s destinations.
The Yangon-Mandalay -Novosibirsk direct flight will be operated twice a week on Tuesday and Saturday. — MNA/TS
