Khiri Travel Myanmar has confirmed that its joint
venture partner in Myanmar, Edwin Briels, has stepped back from
the partnership after nine years.
Since 2011, Khiri Travel Myanmar has been a joint
venture between Briels, Aung Min Thein and Khiri Travel Ltd.
Prior to COVID19, the company had more than
30 staff and in 2019 handled over 3000 visitors.
Khiri Travel CEO Herman Hoven said that the
company would ensure that any bookings tour operators and clients
have with Khiri will be fulfilled, or postponed due to the ongoing
global COVID19 pandemic
without cost penalty, should this be needed.
“Khiri Travel Myanmar is very much open, ready and
looking forward to once again delivering signature Myanmar
experiences to travellers when international travel returns,” said
Hoven. “We wish Edwin all the best. We will continue to work with
him on occasional projects. We thank him for a terrific nine years
and wish him every success in his new ventures.”
Travel in Myanmar will now adjust internally while continuing to
provide a full range of DMC services in the country.
