EVA Airways to launch three weekly flights to Yangon International airport

TAIPEI -- Taiwan's EVA Airways said Friday it will launch three weekly flights to Myanmar's commercial hub Yangon from October in expectation of growing demand as the country embarks a reform drive.

The airline said it decided to start the new route as it expects the former capital to attract more Taiwanese businessmen and tourists as the country emerges from decades of military rule.

China Airlines, Taiwan's largest international airline, also announced recently that it will expand services to Yangon to operate a total of five weekly flights from mid-September, up from the current four.

Myanmar's main airport is expected to exceed passenger capacity this year, officials said, as an influx of visitors to the once-isolated nation prompts plans for a new international flight hub.
