Ambassador of Sri Lanka to Myanmar Janaka Bandara held a meeting with the top management of Myanmar Airways International, with the view of establishing direct air connectivity between Sri Lanka and Myanmar.

Chairman Aung Aung Zaw and Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) Tanes Kumar represented Myanmar Airways International in the discussion.

In this discussion, the Ambassador requested to establish a regular charter flight between Yangon and Colombo and proposed to extend the Yangon – Chennai flight up to Colombo.

He further agreed to see the possibility of arranging charter flights between Yangon and Colombo during the month of August, enabling the Myanmar pilgrims to go to Kandy to pay homage to the Sacred Tooth Relic Temple “Sri Dalada Maligawa” and see “Asela Perahera” cultural pageant.

The Ambassador highlighted the significance of direct air connectivity in promoting the tourism industries of both destinations.

The Ambassador assured that there would be a sizable traffic up and down between these two significant destinations underpinned by historical, cultural and religious affinities.

The Ambassador further suggested exploring the feasibility of having a circuit connecting Colombo – Yangon – Bodhgaya or Colombo – Yangon – Kathmandu with the view of gaining economic benefit out of the religious significance of these countries.

The CCO Kumar was positive towards the suggestions and agreed to work on them.

The proposal to establish direct air connectivity between Sri Lanka and Myanmar had been discussed at many high level forums in both countries.
