Myanmar National Airlines continues ambitious international expansion with Hong Kong, Taiwan & China


Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) aims to extend its new international network to Hong Kong and Taipei by the end of 2015. Multiple destinations in mainland China are planned for 2016 as the rebranded government-owned carrier expands its new 737-800 fleet to four aircraft.

MNA began a new chapter on 17-Aug-2015 with the resumption of international services after a 22 year hiatus. MNA currently serves Singapore and 26 domestic destinations throughout Myanmar.

MNA will have to overcome challenges in all its new international markets, including fierce competition from foreign carriers with established international brands. But MNA is confident it can carve out a niche by leveraging its leading domestic network and a new distribution arrangement with Abacus.

Mozio CEO Update

Mozio founder and CEO David Litwak described how Mozio is 'basically a GDS for local transportation', providing airlines and online travel agencies with access to ground transportation options in all their geographies and a way to sell this easily. He said that to work with the travel industry, a company “can’t be so disruptive that you are trying to blow up the existing systems”, noting the need instead to be “disruptive within the existing systems”. He said there is way to provide new ground transportation systems and technology within the existing booking systems and corporate booking tools, while also bringing new aggregation and app technology into the market. He said there are lessons from Uber in how to bring new concepts to the market place, but described Uber as having a “net positive overall”.
