Bangkok Airways will become the first foreign carrier to fly to Burma’s capital when it begins flights to Naypyidaw next month, the airline has announced. “It has long been our plan to cover the three key cities of Myanmar by the end of this September,” said the company’s president, Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth. Bangkok Airways currently flies three times daily from Bangkok to Rangoon, with a fourth flight to be added in late October, and will also start flying to Mandalay four times a week from Sept. 15. Bangkok to Naypyidaw flights will begin on Sept. 30, with three flights a week.
