Myanmar National Airlines announced that it will reopen its Yangon-Bangkok-Yangon route to transport important medicines and medical equipment as well as other commodities.
Pilot U Khout Khant Maung said the flights will begin on 3 April but will only make six to seven flights in the entire month, as there won’t be daily flights. He said the main cargo will be medical supplies and equipment donated from Thailand and other purchases from Yangon. MNA has currently scheduled the flights for 3, 8, 11, 22, 25 and 29 April. MNA will have no passenger flights, only cargo flights, and the airports will be open for other planes carrying medical supplies and emergency medical flights. Myanmar has closed all of its airports on 30 March 2020 for inbound flights according to the Department of Civil Aviation. —Aye Min Thu, Zarni Maung (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
