The new air route will operate three flights a week on Monday, Friday and Sunday by Airbus A320 aircraft.

Flights will depart at 15:45 in HCM City and 18:35 in Yangon (the local time) with a duration of two hours and 20 minutes for each flight.

On this occasion, the airline has organised a promotion programme to offer cheap tickets for passengers taking flights between November 15th and December 25th, resulting in a return ticket costing around $100.

Earlier in March, the carrier also opened a non-stop route from Hanoi to Rangoon with four flights a week. In its winter schedule, there will be five flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, between the two cities.
