Air Mandalay (Burmese: အဲမန္တလေး) is an airline based in Yangon, Myanmar. It is a regional airline operating domestic services and international charter flights to neighboring countries. Its main base is Yangon International Airport. It temporarily deferred its schedule services in December, 2014 due to unforeseen import permit issues that delayed the delivery of new jet planes. In early April, 2015, with two newly leased Embraer ERJ 145 having joined the fleet, the airline resumed its charter operations and followed with scheduled services.
