Flight from Yangon to Mandalay

Posted by jbrey99 on 22/5/2014 at 11:40

Anyone have any flight info on Yangon to Mandalay?

I hear Air Bagan is the best, and searched that they have flights at 6am and 8am. But I'm unsure of the cost for a one way ticket for one person. Do you arrange this the day before with a travel agent?

Thank you!

The other reputable names include Yangon Airways, Air Mandalay. The departure time is almost the same as the one scheduled by Air Bagan. Yes the agent can help you book the tickets but I would rather buy them in advance just to avoid any potential trouble.

I booked flights through a major travel agency in Yangon the day before....Yangon- Bagan -Heho-Yangon. I wanted to book Air Bagan but was told it was "no more", so I was booked on Asian Wings Airlines. Turning up at the airport, we checked in to the Asian wings counter....and noticed a few French tourists checking in to the Air Bagan counter!! (Keep your sense of humour at all times!)We were told to be at the airport 4 hours prior! Crazy huh? Well, the plane turned up 2 hours before and it was chaotic! We were rushed out to the plane with much urgency, the plane barely stopped! On the flight from Bagan to Heho, we had barely got in the air, when the plane started to descend. We were the only two passengers! I asked the stewardess what we were doing, and she replied " we go to Mandalay for petrol". We had the same stewardess on all three flights, they were fun, interesting flights.
This was travel in 2011.
