Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Friday, 14 March 2014

Air China will launch Beijing-Yangon and Chengdu-Kunming-Yangon flights on 30 March 2014.

As the situation in Myanmar has stabilized, both leisure and business travelers are steadily increasing. Statistics suggest that in the three years from 2010 to 2012, air travelers from China to Yangon increased at a rate of 30.1%, and from January to July 2013, travelers increased by 23.1% year on year.

The introduction of the two services - Beijing-Yangon and Chengdu-Kunming-Yangon - will not only meet the needs of Chinese leisure and business travelers, but also offer an additional transit option via Beijing for Southeast Asia travelers to Japan, South Korea, Europe, and America.

Moreover, it will further improve Air China's global route network with its hub in Beijing and solidify the role of Chengdu as Air China's regional hub, making southwest China and other parts of the world more accessible to each other.

The outbound flight departs from Beijing at 19:30 and arrives in Yangon at 22:50 local time. The return flight departs from Yangon at 23:50 local time and arrives in Beijing at 05:50 Beijing time.
