Budget Carrier Takes Aim At Myanmar
Leading low-cost airline carrier Thai AirAsia will commence services to Mandalay from Bangkok starting October 4th.
The airline already flies to the gateway city of Yangon.
According to comments in the Bangkok Post by TAA's Chief Executive Tassapon Bijleveld the carrier is targeting two additional destinations - the popular tourist destination Bagen and new capital Nay Pyi Taw in the near future.
As investors continue to flock to the emerging country, traffic to Yangon has created a bottleneck. TAA's strategy to go direct to other key locations looks to be a strategic move.
