Based in Mandalay, Golden Myanmar Airlines has a strong presence in Southeast Asia aviation. The airline reaches more than 10 domestic locations across Myanmar and delivers a vital transport link for both locals and foreigners. It is one of only a few carriers that fly to several of the country’s destinations.
While Golden Myanmar Airlines does not schedule international services, it flies to locations close to both the Thailand and Laos borders. This presents a budget-friendly alternative for people wishing to cross the border via land. Destinations in the north of Myanmar are also near India and China.
French aircraft manufacturer ATR is responsible for delivering the entirety of the fleet. The ATR 72-600 is the preferred model, which is capable of carrying between 68 and 78 passengers. Well-suited to short-haul flights within Myanmar, the jets have two propeller-powered engines. The colors of Myanmar’s national flag, green, yellow, and red, feature as circular stripes on the tail of the fleet.
Economy is the only cabin class available. Seats are set out in a 2 x 2 layout on the small planes, meaning you are guaranteed either a view out the window or aisle access. A complimentary pastry and sweet are served to appease your hunger, as well as a choice of refreshing beverage, such as tea or a soft drink. Some services do not pre-allocate seating, meaning you’ll have more options for your preferred spot by boarding early. Complimentary checked baggage weighing a maximum of 20 kg (approximately 44 lb) is permitted, in addition to a small piece of hand luggage.
