This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.
Burma (aka Myanmar)
Land border crossings exist but have a myriad of rules and are often closed. Thus more visitors to Burma arrive by air. Airlines flying to Yangon (Rangoon) include:
- Star Alliance - Air China, Asiana, Thai
- Oneworld - none
- Sky Team - China Southern
- Other selected - Malaysia Airlines, several Southeast Asian low cost airlines
TIP Longhaul fares to Burma are relatively high. It is cheaper to have a longhaul ticket to Bangkok, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur and then fly to Burma on a separate ticket.
TIP In business class a Star Alliance award is good value, or including Burma on a Sky Team or Star Alliance around the world fare.
