Cheap flights from Myanmar

Myanmar has opened itself up to the international community, and as such travellers can now reach a great selection of cities across the world, through either direct or connecting flights. Skyscanner can help you cherry-pick the route that suits you in a hassle-free and self-explanatory set of search tools, so you can secure the best flights for the best price.

Though there are over 20 airports in Myanmar, but the ones that will offer you the most forwarding destinations are the three international airports. These are:

·         Yangon International Airport (RGN)

·         Mandalay International Airport (MDL)

·         Naypyidaw Airport (NYT)

The most comprehensive of these is the Yangon International Airport (RGN), which operates flights to almost 40 cities within Asia and the Middle East. These are usually offered by the flag-carrier, Myanmar National Airlines, as well as ANA, China Airlines, Golden Myanmar Airlines, Yangon Airways, Air KBZ, China Eastern, Korean Air, Air India, Himalaya Airlines, Dragonair, Air China, Emirates, Vietnam Airlines, Thai AirAsia, and others.

Popular flights from Myanmar

The must-see destination in Myanmar has to be Bagan, home to thousands of pagodas, temples and stupas built between the 9th and 13th centuries—and at the height of their construction there was thought to be around 13,000 of them! Make time for this, as this is one of the most stirring cultural sights you will ever see.

However, you do not have to fly for long to reach to experience other cultures and traditions. In a couple of hours you can be wandering the streets of Kolkata (CCU), a city where the intellectual impetus for the Independence Movement of India was born. Make time for the National Library, the Marble Palace, and throw yourself into the exciting vibe of the Chowringhee neighbourhood.

Then see something totally different by hopping aboard a longer flight to Tokyo (NRT) in Japan, the fast-paced capital of the country. Here you can seek the kind of holiday you want; find serenity in Yoyogi Park in the centre of the city, engage in family fun by visiting Tokyo Disney, and duck into the karaoke bars of Shinjuku to sing your heart out.

Where to find cheap flights from Myanmar

It is essential when travelling from Myanmar that you fly from the most comprehensive hub in the country: the Yangon International Airport (RNG). This will give you the best spread of competitive prices, and generally offer you a larger range of connecting options too.

Look out for low-cost carriers flying on your route; these are particularly ideal for short-haul travel, especially as very few companies offer a dining service.
