Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is increasing its capacity to the routes across its network through additional flights and bigger capacity aircraft for the Northern Summer operating pattern effective March 31, 2013.

In a statement today, group chief executive officer, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, said the capacity increase was made possible as MAS had taken delivery of an average one 160-seater 737-800 aircraft per month, two more 494-seater A380 and four 283-seater A330-300 aircraft this year.

He said the capacity increase was an integral aspect of MAS' Business Plan and the commitment to improve air connectivity within Malaysia as well as leverage on Asia-Pacific where the demand outlook was strong.

"We are confident that our improving fleet size will continue to drive revenue and loads and our return to profitability," he said.

Apart from the Kuala Lumpur-Paris return route that saw a weekly capacity increase of 1,484 seats in each direction with the 494-seater A380 replacing the 282-seater B777-200 from March 1, 2013, the upward capacity changes focus on matching air traffic volume in Asia-Pacific that is expected to see strong growth in 2013 as cargo recovers.

From March 31, 2013, the KL-Manila route weekly frequency will be increased from 25 to 28 B737-800 services with the additional flights operating on Monday, Friday and Sunday.

With the introduction of the three weekly services, this route's capacity is increased by 12 per cent (480 seats) in each direction.

Effective the same day, the daily Boeing 737-800 return frequencies of the airline's KL-Yangon and KL-Colombo routes will also be increased to ten weekly.

The three new weekly services for Yangon will be operated on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday, while the similar services for Colombo will be operated on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.


Meanwhile from Apr 1, 2013, a new daily B777-200 service will be introduced on the KL-Dhaka route, making it double daily wide-body operations between Malaysia and Bangladesh, with capacity also increased 100 per cent from that date.

The present daily B777-200 and twice daily B737-800 return flights for KL-Denpasar (Bali) will also have a daily capacity increase by 20 per cent when one of the daily B737-800 service is replaced by B777-200 service effective April 1, 2013.

The five times weekly A330-300 daily service for KL-Brisbane route will be increased to daily flights effective June 17, 2013, adding 566 seats in each direction, representing a 40 per cent capacity increase.

Capacity on the KL-Bandar Seri Begawan will be increased by 11 per cent with the existing four weekly B737-400 services replaced by B737-800 flights effective August 15, 2013.

On the Peninsular Malaysia services, the present 42 B737 weekly KL-Langkawi services will be increased to 49 effective June 15, 2013.

The KL-Johor Bahru sector, currently served by 27 weekly B737 flights, will be increased by a further five weekly B737-800 flights effective July 15, 2013.

The KL-Kuching route will see the current 49 weekly B737 services gradually increased to 77 weekly services by August 15, 2013.

This will be through the mounting of 19 weekly services effective March 31, 2013, eight weekly services from July 15, 2013 and once weekly service from August 15, 2013.

Similarly the KL-Kota Kinabalu route will also be improved from the current 68 weekly B737 services to 82 weekly services by July 15, 2013.

The KL-Miri route, due to an increase in demand, will see the introduction of 11 additional B737 frequencies with a daily service effective April 15, 2013, thrice weekly service effective July 15, 2013 and once weekly service effective
August 15, 2013.

To cope with similar increased demand, the present seven weekly B737 services for KL-Tawau will be increased by another daily service from June 15, 2013.


From the same day, the present 14 weekly KL-Labuan B737 service will be increased by another six weekly B737 services to make it 20 weekly flights.-- Bernama

ACO plans to invest $700m in Myanmar
By Aung Shin | Monday, 25 March 2013

ACO Investment Group from the United States is planning to invest US$700 million in Myanmar, including $200 million for the Yangon International Airport and $500 million for a telecommunication license, Bloomberg News reported on March 18.

“In the Asian markets, if you’re looking for growth, we would rather look at Myanmar versus the saturated markets of Thailand or Indonesia,” said Hari Achuthan, a former Credit Suisse Group banker and co-founder of ACO Investment Group, told Bloomberg.

U Win Swe Tun, deputy director general of the Department of Civil Aviation under the Ministry of Transportation told the Myanmar Times on March 20 that, “We called prequalification tenders for Yangon International Airport and 19 companies bid.”

“We selected 11 companies and they have to bid again with full information and qualifications we mentioned in the tender.

“ACO is included in the list of 11 prequalified companies but the final winner will only be announced after the next round in the tender process,” he said.

“The company will get long term operation of the airport with renovation investment, with the project starting in mid-2013.”

ACO Investment Group also passed prequalification for the two national telecoms licenses that will be released by the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology. Prequalification was held in February. 7Day News journal reported on March 20 that ACO has to bid with another 10 companies the licenses.

ACO also made an agreement with Mandalay Region government last month to develop solar energy farms generating 1000 megawatts (MW) of electricity in a $1.5 billion to $2 billion project in two years project, Bloomberg reported. The report added that ACO invested $500 million in solar farms and $250 million in wind farm projects in Vietnam.

Dr Myint Kyu, Mandalay Region’s Minister for Industry, said on March 22: “We signed a memorandum of understanding with on February 9 for a solar power project. The total power generated will be 1000MW and it will be supplied to the national grid. The company is now starting physical surveys in Mandalay Region.”

“The four steps of the project will be implemented in four places in Mandalay Region. Each step will generate 250MW. The project surveys are being done in Myingyan, Wuntwin, Kyaukse and Meiktila.

“ACO will sign a power purchasing agreement with the union government after the survey,” he said.

The US government has quickly eased sanctions against Myanmar in the past two years as Myanmar’s civilian government reforms. The two nations have enhanced political cooperation, trade and investment in that time, with the US Treasury Department issuing a general license allowing trade with four banks on February 24, including two owned by sanctioned individuals.

Golden Myanmar flies first international route to Singapore



News Tuesday, 02 April 2013 12:23 Written by Piers Evans

Golden Myanmar Airlines is introducing its first international service with a flight to Singapore on April 5, with Bangkok, Delhi and Hong Kong now set to launch.
A daily A320 service will fly from Mandalay (MDL) via Yangon (RGN) to Singapore’s Changi Airport (SIN).

Golden Myanmar Airlines shareholder U Aung Gyi told the Myanmar Times that the carrier would soon launch flights to Bangkok, Delhi and Hong Kong.

At the end of February, Golden Myanmar alerted OAG that it would fly a daily A320 service to Bangkok leaving Yangon at 5.40pm and landing at Suvarnabhumi (BKK) at 7.20pm.

“We will also fly to Bangkok at the end of April. As we originally planned, we will add more aircraft very soon and will fly to Delhi and Hong Kong in the near future,” he told the newspaper.

The low-cost carrier added a second A320 to double its fleet before launching the Singapore route, he added.

A recent report by the Centre for Pacific Aviation (CAPA) highlighted how Myanmar’s international air traffic is shifting from Yangon to Mandalay, said the newspaper.

From Mandalay, international flights now serve Bangkok Don Muaeng (DMK), Bangkok Suvarnabhumi (BKK) and Kunming (KMG).

Golden Myanmar’s Singapore flights will leave Mandalay at 8.10am and Yangon at 10.10am to arrive in Singapore at 2.40pm.

The service will then leave Changi at 3.35pm, arriving in Yangon at 5.05pm and Mandalay at 7.05pm

Changi Airport enhances connectivity to Myanmar
Apr 05, 2013 09:50 CEST

SINGAPORE, 5 April 2013 – Changi Airport Group (CAG) today announced the arrival of a new carrier, Golden Myanmar Airlines, at Singapore Changi Airport. The carrier will operate daily services connecting Singapore via Yangon to Mandalay, the financial capital of Myanmar.

Mandalay is a new city link for Changi Airport and brings to 47 the number of cities in Southeast Asia that Changi is connected to. The new service by Golden Myanmar Airlines further enhances Changi Airport’s position as a key gateway to the region.

CAG’s Senior Vice President for Market Development, Mr Lim Ching Kiat, said, “We are extremely delighted to welcome Golden Myanmar into Changi’s family of airlines. This is a significant milestone for us given the tremendous growth opportunities for business and leisure travel between Singapore and Myanmar. We are confident that the additional flights will make it easier for people to travel between the two countries and we look forward to working closely with the airline to realise the growth potential that exist in the two markets.”

Bilateral trade between Singapore and Myanmar increased 8.6%[1] last year compared to 2011. The commencement of Golden Myanmar’s flights to Singapore comes at an opportune time as Myanmar steps up efforts to accelerate social-economic development in the country.

Mr Aung Gyi, Golden Myanmar Airlines’ Managing Director, said, “Singapore and Myanmar have enjoyed strong trade and economic links over the last few years and Singapore currently ranks among one of Myanmar’s top trade partners. Coupled with Changi Airport's strength as a well connected aviation hub, it was not a difficult decision for us to make her our first international destination. We plan to utilise Singapore as an extended gateway into Myanmar’s leading commercial cities and we also hope to reach other parts of Asia from Changi Airport.”

Golden Myanmar Airlines will operate from Changi Airport’s Terminal 1. Utilising the 180-seat A320 aircraft, the airline will operate the following flight schedule:

Flight No. Aircraft Type Route STD (Local Time) STA (Local Time) Days of Operation
Y5 233 A320 Mandalay–Yangon–Singapore 0810H (MDL)1010H (RGN) 0925H (RGN)1440H (SIN) Daily
Y5 234 A320 Singapore–Yangon–Mandalay 1535H (SIN)1750H (RGN) 1705H (RGN)1905H (MDL) Daily
Passenger traffic between Singapore and Myanmar has grown positively in recent years. In the five years from 2008 to 2012, passenger movements between the two countries increased by 17.0% annually on a compounded basis. In 2012, passenger traffic grew by 22.8% year-on-year to reach 406,000 movements.

“The decision by Golden Myanmar Airlines to choose Changi as its first international port-of-call reflects the strength and robust potential of our air hub and we are truly honoured by this confidence. Looking ahead, we remain determined to build on our capabilities to secure Changi Airport’s position as the preferred gateway to Asia for travellers from all over the world,” added Mr Lim.

Nepalese Airlines to launch nonstop flight service to Yangon

http://www.elevenmyanmar.com/busines...vice-to-yangon

The Nepalese Airlines have been in talks with Myanmar airlines authorities to launch direct flight services from Yangon to Kathmandu, according airlines director Saroj K. Kasaju.

The director said the nonstop service will be operated during this year to promote tourism. There is no direct flight from Myanmar to Nepal and tourists who wish to visit Lumbini [Buddhist pilgrimage site] have to travel via India.

"Yangon-Lumbini nonstop flight schedule will be added after completion of airport construction in Lumbini," Saroj told the Nepal Travel Forum on May 17.

Nepal has raised its visa fee from $10 to $25 in 2010. The participants had discussed about the reduction in visa fee.

Forum officiating officer Subash Nirola said, he will talk to the authorities of Nepal for reducing visa fee. At least 300,000 Myanmar tourists visit Lumbini every year. The authorities are also planning to make changes in programs that will ensure visitors comfort while visiting Nepal.

"For Bodh Gaya visitors Indian Airlines, Myanmar International Airlines and private chartered service are available. The visitors travel Lumbini through India-Nepal border. A nonstop flight will bring about convenience," travel agent Maung Maung Aye from Mahatoe Bodh Gaya Tour Company.

Bodh Gaya is a religious place where the Buddha obtained the enlightenment. It is located northern India close to Nepal. Lumbini is where the Buddha lived until at the age of 29 which is located in Nepal now.

A 15-day trip to Bodh Gaya will cost over $1,000 per person. Indian visa is available online and Nepalese visa can be applied at Nepalese Embassy. Nepalese authorities are issuing border pass at Lumbini for tourists.

Myanmar to build new airport



YANGON, 4 July 2013: Myanmar will go ahead with a proposed new international airport at Hanthawady, central Bago, just 50 km from Yangon, to cope with anticipated flood tide of tourists by 2017.


Hanthawaddy International Airport will cover an area of 3,924 hectare and will cost around US1 billion to build. Once open in December 2017, it will be able to handle up to 12 million passengers a year, but could be expanded in phases to accommodate 35 million passengers a year.


It facilities will be able to support A380s.


The project will be undertaken as a public private partnership or a joint venture according to specifications that were drawn up by the Department of Civil Aviation and the Ministry of Transport.


Qualified firms were invited to bid in July 2012 and by February this year 11 firms or consortiums were pre-qualified to a shortlist.


They included firms from Japan, France, the US, Ireland, South Korea, Singapore and Malaysia.


By the 6 June the lead companies of 11 consortiums (three to four companies per consortium) presented their final pre-qualification bids.
After their pre-qualification bid, firms are to submit formal tenders for the project, which will be implemented through a public-private partnership (PPP), joint venture or build-operate- transfer (BOT) system in accordance with Myanmar’s Foreign Investment Law, according to the Department of Civil Aviation.


However, reports earlier this week suggested that only four companies — Incheon Airport Consortium, Yongram-CAPE-JGC Consortium, Vinci Airport (France) and Taisei Corporation – - had submitted proposals for the contract.


According to the DCA, the winning tender will be announced by late July with a scheduled start of the project in September.


Meanwhile, Yangon International Airport will be upgraded to handle up to 6 million passengers annually up from 2.7 million passengers.


Built on 405 hectares the airport handled slightly less than 500,000 visitors in 2012 but that figure will peak at 6 million in 2017 if tourism forecasts are accurate.


Hanthawaddy International Airport was first mooted in 1996 and a foundation stone laying ceremony was held by the military junta shortly before a Malaysia-based company was given the contract. It pulled out of the project.


Myanmar has three international airports; Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw. It has 29 regional airports in Myanmar and there are plans to turn the management of airports over to private firms.


Just 24 international airlines fly Myanmar while there are seven airlines operating domestically.

Malaysia Airlines adds frequency to Yangon and Auckland

http://www.breakingtravelnews.com/ne...-and-auckland/

Malaysia Airlines continues its expansion model with the announcement of increased airlift to capital cities, Auckland and Yangon. Only last week, the Malaysian national carrier announced the addition of Dubai, Darwin and Kochi to its network.

From 1 August 2013, Malaysia Airlines will increase frequency from Kuala Lumpur into Yangon, Myanmar, from ten times weekly to fourteen times weekly. Meanwhile, services from Kuala Lumpur to Auckland will be increased from six times weekly to a daily service effective 24 November 2013.

To celebrate the new frequency, Malaysia Airlines is offering UK travellers great value fares until 31 July 2013. Return fares to Yangon start at just £649 and Auckland at just £869.

Malaysia Airlines continues to operate the only direct service between London and Kuala Lumpur with a double daily A380 service operating from London Heathrow. These improved connections to Yangon and Auckland from Kuala Lumpur will enable UK travellers to take advantage of the current tourism boom in both cities.

Tigerair links Singapore and Yangon

http://ttgasia.com/article.php?article_id=21434

THE newly-rebranded Tigerair is upgrading its destination offerings with a new daily service to Yangon, commencing October 1.

On Mondays and Saturdays, flights depart Singapore at 12.00 to reach at 13.30. Return flights leave Yangon at 14.20 and reach Singapore at 18.45.

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, Yangon-bound services take off at 17.00 and touch down at 18.25. Return flights depart Yangon at 19.05 and arrive in Singapore at 23.35.


Tigerair’s chief commercial officer, Alexander Knigge, said: “Yangon is increasing in popularity as a destination for businessmen from Singapore because of the vast opportunities available today. It is also fast becoming an attractive tourism spot for Singapore residents, drawing a constant stream of visitors to its rich heritage.

“This Singapore-Yangon route will also enable Tigerair to serve both the 50,000-strong (Myanmar) community here, and their family and friends back home who want to stay connected with one another.”

To commemorate the new service, Tigerair is dangling promotional fares for the route starting from S$26 (US$21), excluding tax and fees. Available for sale until August 5, fares are valid for travel between October 1 and November 13.

ANA boosts Yangon flights to daily service

http://ttgasia.com/article.php?article_id=21417

ALL Nippon Airways (ANA) will increase the frequency and capacity of its Tokyo (Narita)-Yangon route beginning September 30, from thrice weekly to daily.

Nyo Nyo Khaing, manager at the Yangon-based ANA office, said that seat capacity on the route would be increased through the deployment of a new 202-seater Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.

“Currently, the schedule is three flights a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, using B737-700ER aircraft that can accommodate just 34 seats, comprising 24 business-class seats and 10 economy-class seats,” she said.

“We hope that the new aircraft with more economy seats will attract more passengers between the two countries.”

Flights departing Tokyo’s Narita International Airport leave at 10.30 and arrive in Yangon at 15.10. On the return leg, Tokyo-bound flights take off at 21.45 and touch down in the Japanese capital at 06.50 the next day. Ticket sales for the new daily service have started.

ANA aims to capitalise on the projected increase in demand for both direct and indirect flights between Japan and the rest of Asia, and between North America and Asia.

The airline was among the first to launch direct services between Japan and Myanmar. Its maiden Tokyo-Yangon flight took off in October last year (TTG Asia e-Daily, October 12, 2012).

ANA will also increase seat capacity for flights out of Narita to Chengdu from October 1.
