Myanmar Airways is set to launch direct flights from Novosibirsk to Yangon on September 6th, opening up exciting travel opportunities for Russian tourists. Tour operators are already gearing up to offer package tours based on these flights, aiming to capitalize on the increased interest in Myanmar due to the current scarcity of international travel destinations.
According to the Vice President of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) and the General Director of Space Travel, Artur Muradyan, the introduction of direct flights is expected to ignite Russian travelers’ curiosity about Myanmar, especially in light of the limited availability of foreign vacation spots.
Myanmar is poised to become an attractive alternative to Vietnam in the upcoming winter season, where direct flights are currently only available from Irkutsk.
Myanmar Airways will serve two major cities in Myanmar: Yangon, the country’s largest city and former capital, and Mandalay, with a stopover on the way to Yangon. Flights will operate twice a week, departing from Yangon on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and from Novosibirsk on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Myanmar has always been a destination where tourists sought to diversify their travel experiences beyond popular spots like Thailand and Vietnam. Travelers often combined visits to Myanmar with neighboring countries like Laos, India, and Malaysia to create unique and enriching itineraries.
With these new direct flights, Myanmar is set to captivate Russian travelers with its rich cultural heritage, stunning landscapes, and warm hospitality. Tourists can explore Yangon’s vibrant markets, visit ancient temples in Bagan, or take a serene cruise along the picturesque Inle Lake.
Additionally, Mandalay offers a gateway to Myanmar’s heartland, where travelers can immerse themselves in the country’s history and traditions. The introduction of these flights opens up a world of possibilities for adventurers and culture enthusiasts eager to explore Myanmar’s hidden treasures.
In conclusion, the launch of direct flights from Novosibirsk to Myanmar marks an exciting development in the world of travel. Myanmar’s allure as a destination has been growing steadily, and with increased accessibility, it is expected to become a sought-after choice for Russian tourists seeking new and captivating experiences. These flights promise to connect travelers with Myanmar’s unique charm, making it a top destination for the upcoming winter season and beyond.
