Air Mandalay Limited is a joint venture company that was incorporated on 6th October 1994 to operate as Myanmar’s first joint venture airline and support the country’s tourism industry.
The airline, based in Yangon, has since established itself as a carrier of high standards with a wide domestic network and one regional link, to Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. It operates to all of Myanmar’s main tourist destinations and commercial hubs.
The airline also offers air charter services to destinations both within the country and regionally.
In September 2010 Air Mandalay embarked on a new era of expansion, adding one ATR-72 to its fleet and refurbishing its existing aircraft both inside and out. To reflect this step forward for the company the aircraft livery was also updated to a more modern design.
Due to the growth of tourism and business investment in Myanmar, air transportation has become an important contributor to both the country’s economic growth and its infrastructure development.
The country is looking to position itself as a major tourism destination capable of handling an increasing number of foreign visitors and the airline industry will play a vital role in achieving this.
Air Mandalay’s logo depicts the mythological royal Hintha bird, which symbolises loyalty, respect for traditional values, stability, good luck and prosperity.
The colours in our logo are also significant. Yellow represents the numerous golden pagodas found throughout Myanmar, which is often called the Golden Land. Maroon signifies the colour of our commitment to provide safe, reliable and comfortable flights for our passengers.
