Myanmar’s freshest airline is its first self-proclaimed budget carrier: Golden Myanmar Airlines (airline code: Y5) operates a small fleet of turboprop ATR72s and jet-powered Airbus A320s to connect main hubs Yangon and Mandalay to smaller airports like Nyaung-U (your gateway to the temples of Bagan), Heho (the closest airport to Inle Lake), and Naypyitaw (site of the new Myanmar capital).
Golden Myanmar Airlines operates a double-tiered fare system where foreigners pay higher prices in dollar denominations compared to Myanmar citizens paying in kyat.
