Emirates will launch its first ever flights to Myanmar this summer.

Commencing on 3 August 2016, the airline will add two new Southeast Asian destinations to its route map, with the Dubai-Yangon flight continuing onwards to Hanoi. The service will operate daily.

“With the opening of this service, Emirates will enhance its Southeast Asia offering and offer more choices for travellers in Myanmar and Vietnam to conveniently connect to 39 cities in Europe, 16 in the Middle East as well as a number of destinations across our extensive network in Africa and the Americas,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ divisional senior vice president of strategic planning, revenue optimisation & aeropolitical affairs.

“Emirates’ first air service to Myanmar supports the country’s Tourism Master Plan to target 7.5 million tourist arrivals by 2020, and for Hanoi, the service will provide additional options for Vietnamese to travel to Dubai and Emirates’ global network of destinations, while also making it easier for overseas Vietnamese and the growing number of tourists to travel to Vietnam.”

The new service will depart Dubai daily at 0250, arriving at Yangon International Airport at 1105. The service will then depart Yangon at 1235 and arrive at Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport at 1450.
The return flight will depart Vietnam’s capital city at 2250hrs, arriving at Yangon at 0020 the next day. It will then leave Myanmar’s largest city at 0150 and arrive in Dubai at 0505.

Emirates will operate the route using a three-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

This new service will expand the airline’s network in Southeast Asia to 12 cities across seven countries, including the Philippine hubs of Cebu and Clark which start on 30 March 2016.
