Yangon International Airport (YIA) has extended the suspension of all incoming international flights until 30 June 2021, announced the Ministry of Transport and Communications.
During the suspension of all international commercial passenger flights because of the COVID-19 period, YIA gave its services to other cargo planes or flights and relief flights.

Department of Civil Aviation and the Ministry of Health and Sports announced that scheduled international passenger services had been suspended in Myanmar since 30 March 2020 due to the pandemic.
However, for those who will come to Myanmar by relief flights over an emergency government duty or an emergency reason, foreigners, including diplomats and the officers and staff from UN agencies, need to contact Myanmar embassies in foreign countries or consulates in Myanmar to lift the visa restrictions.
Furthermore, Myanmar Airways International (MAI) and Air KBZ have suspended their domestic flight operations to Tachilek, Kalay, Kengtung, Dawei, Myeik and Kawthoung Townships from 29 May to 8 June during the pandemic period. — ZYA/GNLM
