Myanmar National Airlines has taken delivery of the airline's first Boeing 737-800 leased from GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing arm of GE.

The aircraft is the first all-new Boeing airplane to be delivered to any Myanmar-based airline.

"Our new 737 will allow us to expand our network to international markets and offer an even better experience for our passengers," said Myanmar National Airlines CEO, Than Tun. "Investing in new technology aircraft such as the 737 will ensure Myanmar National Airlines continues to be the pride of the country and positions us for future success."

Myanmar National Airlines, previously Myanma Airways, has the most extensive route network within Myanmar, serving more than 25 domestic locations, and is headquartered in Yangon. Founded in 1948 as Union of Burma Airways, the flag carrier is also one of Asia's pioneering airlines.
