Asian Wings begins domestic flights
By Zaw Win Than
January 31-February 6, 2011

NEW domestic airline Asian Wings Airways took to the air for the first time last week.

“We started to fly our domestic routes on January 27, shortly after getting our Air Operation Certificate” in mid-January, said general manager U Maung Maung Shwe Moe.

“Our first route was Yangon-Nyaung Oo-Mandalay-Heho-Yangon, and the flight left Yangon at 6am from Yangon on that day,” he said. “We are fully booked until the end of [January] and have received some bookings for February as well.”

The airline is also offering flights to Tachileik, Lashio, Myitkyina, Kalay, Dawei, Myeik and Kawthoung and plans to begin services between Yangon and Thandwe, Khamti, Bhamo, Kyaukpyu, Sittwe, Mawlamyine, Monywa, Homalin and Loikaw “very soon”.

U Maung Maung Shwe Moe said he was confident Asian Wings could quickly gain a large slice of the domestic market, despite charging a similar price to its competitors.

“Ticket prices are the same as other airlines because they are standardised by the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism. Instead, we will more focus on passenger services, including on-board services, opening branch offices at our routes and accepting bookings until 8pm. We will also introduce a reliable online reservation system very soon,” he said on January 22.

“We have already opened our branch offices at many of our destinations, including Heho, Mandalay, Nyaung Oo and Kengtung, and offices at some other destinations are still under development. Passengers can also buy [tickets] from our branch offices during their trip,” he said.

To entice customers, the airline will also offer a free shuttle service for those travelling to Mandalay. “It is quite far from Mandalay Airport to downtown so that’s why we decided to offer a free ferry from the airport.”

Another new carrier, Air Kanbawza, backed by Kanbawza Bank, is expected to soon follow Asian Wings into the domestic market, joining Air Mandalay, Air Bagan and state-run Myanma Airways.

Local travel operators said last week an expansion in capacity on the domestic network would be needed to meet demand in the coming peak season.

“I welcome the new Asian Wings Airline. As tourist arrival numbers are increasing on last year, we really need more domestic flights to access destinations. For passengers it just means another option when planning their trip,” said U Lynn Zaw Wai Mang, executive director of Unique Asia Travel and Tour.

The launch of Asian Wings comes less than two months after Yangon Airways was forced to suspend services. The stoppage came after the Department of Civil Aviation revoked the airline’s Air Operation Certificate for undisclosed reasons.

Vietnam Airlines Ho Chi Minh – Tokyo Narita
Feb 2011 service adjustment

During the month of February 2011, Vietnam Airlines’ is re-routing its 1 of 2 Daily Daily Ho Chi Minh City – Tokyo Narita service, which is operated by Airbus A321.

Due to jetstream and weather-related issues, flight from Tokyo is making a stop in Taipei, instead of Da Nang. Also, it appears the Skyteam carrier no longer has the traffic rights on Tokyo Narita – Da Nang sector prior to the changes.

Revised schedule:

VN952 SGN0555 – 1320NRT 321 D

VN953 NRT1900 – 2225TPE2320 – 0205+1SGN 321 3
VN953 NRT1930 – 2250TPE2350 – 0235+1SGN 321 x3

What if we want to post pictures of the airports (proposed rendering, U/C, or completed one), can we post it here? I think this thread will be suitable for countries like Cambodia, Laos, or Myanmar that still new in aviation section... A bigger countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, or the Philippines certainly need their own threads as their aviation sector is bigger and will contains more and continuous updates...

Just my 2 cents though...

I totally see where you are coming from, but I'm going to make this thread a trial thread and will monitor activity from the thread. Should there be a need to re-differentiate the superthread into individual countries again, I'll be glad to dismantle it and reactivate the original discussion threads.

Keep in mind, aviation news can also belong in airline threads (i.e. Guarda Indonesia, Thai Airways, Malaysian Airlines, and Philippine Airlines) , as well as the airport threads. So with airport renderings and pictures, you can post it on this thread no problem, but if there is already an airport thread, or if you want to start a new one, that's fine with me.

Please watch what you say. The bolded statement above can be found as rather offensive.

Tonle Sap Airline takes off

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday, 07 February 2011 20:25
Chun Sophal

Newly-licensed Tonle Sap Airline has carried out its first chartered flight, officials said today.

The airline was granted a two-year licence to operate last month and completed a flight from Siem Reap to Taiwan late last week, packed with tourists and business people, according to the State Secretariat of Civil Aviation.

The firm has leased two Boeing 737 planes from the United Kingdom and is backed by Cambodian, Taiwanese, Singaporean and British investors, according to SSCA.

Officials did not identify the backers involved.

Sin Chanserey Vutha, director of the planning and policy department at SSCA, said the company had set out a plan to operate regular flights to three destinations – Taiwan, South Korea and Vietnam.

“We hope that the regular flights will help [attract] more tourists and investors to Cambodia,” he said, detailing that the company will initially offer one daily flight to Taiwan.

Flights to domestic tourist locations such as Sihanoukville – which now has no regular flights running to its re-vamped airport – and Phnom Penh would be considered as the next step.

Ou Serey Sopheap, a Tonle Sap Airline official, today confirmed the company’s first flight, stating that at the moment its planes were chartered.

Meanwhile, the Cambodia Association of Travel Agents welcomed the news.

Ang Kim Eang, president of CATA, expressed hope that in the future tourists would be able to utilise the planes to ease passage to Siem Reap.

He added that previously there had been no direct flights to Taiwan.

The SSCA said in December that it also planned to license a company called Indochina Airline. Sin Chanserey Vutha said today that its application was being examined but had yet to be confirmed.

I've temporarily reopend the threads due to overwhelming comments. That being said, I still hope to find a solution and hope everyone will contribute some ideas moving forward.

Philippine Airlines launches India service

Philippine Airlines is preparing to launch services to India, offering discounted airfares from Australia starting at $1313 return.

Beginning March 27, 2011, Philippine Airlines will fly six times a week from Manila to Delhi, while at the same time increasing its Australian services to seven times a week from both Sydney and Melbourne to Manila.

The new services mean travellers can combine the culture of India with the pristine tropical islands of the Philippines on the one low-cost fare.

Return economy flights are available from Sydney to Delhi via Manila from $1331 including taxes, or from Melbourne to Delhi via Manila from $1313 including taxes.

The fares allow one free stopover in the Philippines, or additional stopovers for $50.

Philippines Airlines will increase its Australian services from five a week to seven from March 27, including four daytime flights and three evening flights from both Sydney and Melbourne to Manila.

Does any one know what the update is on Myanmar's new Naypyidaw Airport? I heard that they were constructing a new 3 terminal airport.

Does anyone know if the 2 terminals at Yangon International (RGN) are separated from each other?

Thank you in advance
