Asian Wings Airways is an airline based in Myanmar. It began service on 27 January 2011.[2] The airline operates three ATR 72-500 aircraft that can accommodate about 70 passengers and a single Airbus A321-100.[3] Asian Wings currently offers regular flights to all major tourist destinations in Myanmar.

Asian Wings Airways is owned and operated by Sun Far Travels and Tours Company, Limited.[4]

All Nippon Airways announced in 2013 that it would purchase a 49% stake in Asian Wings Airways for around 3 billion Japanese yen, the first foreign investment in a Myanmar-based airline since democratization,[5] but in 2014 ANA declared that its board of directors had agreed to cancel the investment citing “intensified” competition in the aviation sector.[6]
