The respective civil aviation departments of Myanmar, South Korea and Bangladesh have amended the aviation contracts of 2013, thus, paving the way for more than one direct flight from these two countries to Myanmar.
“We have amended the aviation law with Korea and Bangladesh because we have to cancel the things that are not suitable with present situation,” said Tin Naing Tun, director- general of Civil Aviation Department.
According to the changes, single destination system has been cancelled and multiple destination system has been made.
Myanmar International Airway and Air Bagan have gained permission to fly directly to Bangladesh, according to the Myanmar- Bangladesh Aviation discussion held in 2012.
Due to the changes in the aviation contract with Korea, ANA (All Nippon Airways) from Korea and Asiana Airlines can make direct flight to Myanmar.
Myanmar has signed aviation contracts with not only neighboring countries but also 46 countries including Europe, United States, Israel, and U.A.E.
Myanmar has signed with United States on air transport agreement as the earliest agreement in 1949.
