Boasting a rich legacy spanning more than 67 years, the airline recently unveiled its revitalised word-class services and operations. MNA made history in 2014 as the country’s first government operation to corporatise and subsequently underwent major operational upgrades to meet the latest international standards for safety, security and service.
In June 2015, it received the first in a series of new, state-of-the-art Boeing Next-Generation 737s joining its fleet. The first arrival is one of six Boeing Next-Generation 737-800s and four 737-Max 8s MNA ordered as part of a multi-million dollar strategy to re-invigorate its brand and signal the re-emergence of Myanmar as a competitive member of the global aviation market. On top of this, the airline is also adding six ATR 72-600s to service its domestic network, with the first two planes arriving this year.
In addition to the aircraft, MNA is rolling out its new brand across its whole fleet, launching refreshed services along with its new routes. The airline installed a state-of-the-art computerised management system for reservations and departure control processes as well as a new website providing electronic booking, payment, and seat selection – becoming the most efficient and advanced airline in the country.
Customers can now enjoy a seamless experience throughout their entire journey from check-in to arrival. Not only have all in-flight, airport, and sales staff undergone comprehensive training in line with international standards, but once on the aircraft, customers can expect an exceptionally clean, comfortable, and modern environment.

They are then fast tracked through arrival formalities to their transport or waiting family and friends. Guests may also book the Mingalabar limo service to and from Yangon City. This offering is complimentary for passengers travelling in Business Class and available for an extra fee for those travelling in other cabins.
