The Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) will operate Yangon-Gaya-Yangon Charter Flight every Sunday starting November to April 2023, according to the launching ceremony jointly conducted by Gracious Vacation Company Limited and its partner company Wow India Travel at the Round House in Yangon yesterday.
“During the COVID-19 period, the flight services for Gaya were suspended. Starting November 2022, we will resume the pilgrimage and the season usually lasts between six and seven months. We will start the operation in November as there might be fewer passengers. Normally, we sell the flight ticket for the Yangon-Gaya-Yangon trip separately and the travel agents buy them here. The trip takes one week and the 7 nights/ 8 days trip includes significant places in India and Nepal. There are also 15-day/14-night trips. They are normal trips,” said Chairman of Gracious Vacation Company Limited U Naung Naung Han.
The Bodh Gaya trip started in 2013 and was suspended in February 2020 for the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The trip will be resumed this November. The Charter Flight can carry 158 passengers and it costs $420 per pilgrim and $400 if they make a group trip.
“Every Buddhist intend to pay a visit to Bodh Gaya, where the Buddha was born, in his lifetime. In India, there are the places where the Buddha was born and He preached the first sermons. We call these places Phwar, Pwint, Haw, San (Birth, Enlightenment, Teaching and Parinibbana of the Buddha). They are boasts the birthplace of Buddha, the place where the Buddha attained the Enlightenment, where He preached the sermons and where He died. So, the birthplace of Buddha is located in Nepal and so the Nepal trip is an essential one,” he added.
