Yangon International Airport (YIA), Myanmar’s largest and busiest airport, announced yesterday that it has begun flying travellers directly from Hangzhou to Yangon, China, thrice a week via Sichuan Airlines.
The new route, which launched yesterday, is Sichuan Airlines’ second connection between Yangon and China, following the launch of the Yangon-Xi’an route in November this year. Sichuan Airlines will use 180-seat A320 aircraft for the thrice-weekly flights.
The announcement comes against a backdrop of rising visitor traffic from mainland China, thanks to the Myanmar government’s new visa-on-arrival service. It is expected to boost tourism for both Yangon, Myanmar’s commercial capital, and Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang province and southern terminus of the ancient Grand Canal waterway.
