Two Burmese carriers could operate in Taiwan: CAA

Two Burmese carriers could operate in Taiwan: CAA

Taipei, Sept. 4 (CNA) Myanmar Airways International and Myanmar National Airlines have gained approval from the government of Myanmar to operate flights to and from Taiwan, the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said Friday. The CAA said it has been notified by Myanmar authorities of the green light. However, it remains uncertain when the two carriers plan to start flying to Taiwan, it added.
Taiwan's authorities would still have to evaluate the airlines' applications and give approval before they can operate flights here. The airlines could tap into the market which is currently dominated by Taiwan-based China Airlines. The Taiwanese carrier provides five round-trip flights between Taoyuan and Yangon each week. Far East International Travel Service Co., a sales agent for Myanmar Airways International, said the Taoyuan-Yangon route currently caters to more business travelers than leisure tourists.
