Myanmar has several domestic airlines, usually, fly the identical route and time. Most of them are small carriers, established recent decades or even recent years, and have a small fleet of a few aircraft (usually about 2 to 5). They are truly comparable in cost, equipment, quality, service, food, and scheduling.

Despite this fact, burma owns tremendous domestic airlines and most of them now contain used eticketing issuing system.
Here are several following airlines for our choice:
- Air Mandalay – (Safety, Reliability & Comfort) – It is the original burma domestic airline, founded in 1994. They fly to 11 destinations with a tiny fleet of three. No incident to date.

They fly to 15 domestic destinations with a tiny fleet of three. Especially, they sell E-TICKET, accept VISA and MASTERCARD (many companies in myanmar do not accept any card). Services are quite amazing.
- Mann Yadanapon Airlines – started their operation in 2014 with 2 ATR aircrafts. The airline also offers charter services. The services are kind.
- Yangon Airways (You’re safe with us) – maybe this motto does not fit in with the painted layer outside their planes. The airline founded in 1996, flies to 11 destinations with a small fleet of three. It is with the US Department of Treasury’s SDN list

There are three international air terminals in Myanmar: Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Py Taw of which Yangon is the most famous one and recieves most of international flights coming and leaving burma.
LIFE ON BOARD
The cabin overhead is smaller than usual, so your regular-sized trolley will not fit up.
