Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) has increased its flight schedules from Nay Pyi Taw to Yangon on August 29 due to the flood that occurred in Yangon-Nay Pyi Taw expressway, it said.
A spillway collapsed in Hswar Dam on the morning of August 29 and water poured out from the dam, damaging Hswar Bridge. It also covered a portion of the expressway. It increased its flights to Nay Pyi Taw and Mandalay for the convenience of their passengers.
“We have increased flight schedules to Nay Pyi Taw and Mandalay from Yangon. The flight schedule will be extended in the coming days in line with the demand,” said Naing Saw Lwin, Chief Commercial Officer of the MNA.
The state owned Myanmar National Airlines was founded as “Union of Burma Airways” on September 15, 1948 and it is flying to Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Gaya and 28 towns in Myanmar.
