SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, has launched flights to Mandalay, Myanmar.

The flight from Changi is scheduled to arrive at Mandalay International Airport at 15:00 local time, while the return flight departs at 16:35 and land in Singapore at 21:30.

Mandalay will be SilkAirs second destination in Myanmar after Yangon, increasing the number of destinations in SilkAirs route network to 48 in 12 countries.

Flights to Mandalay will be operated on a thrice weekly basis, through a circular routing with Yangon, departing Singapore on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The flights will be operated by Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft, featuring both Business and Economy Class cabins.

The second-largest city in Myanmar today, Mandalay has remained throughout its history the capital of culture and religion of the country. The city can also be used as the gateway to the ancient city of Bagan, one of the worlds greatest archaeological sites, as well as to the picturesque Inle Lake.

Chief Executive SilkAir, Mr. Leslie Thng, said, As Myanmar continues to open up, we see significant potential for air travel to the country. We have seen increased demand for both leisure and business travel to Myanmar over the past few years and are excited to be developing this new market.

The new service will connect Mandalay with the joint Singapore Airlines SilkAir network of over 90 cities worldwide via the Singapore hub.
