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.[1] In early April 2015, two newly leased Embraer ERJ 145 jets joined its fleet.

History[edit]

The airline was established on 6 October 1994 and started operations on 18 October that year with a flight from Yangon to Mandalay. It was the first domestic and regional Joint Venture Airline in Burma. It was established as a joint venture between Air Mandalay Holdings Singapore under Managing Director Michael Chang (51%) and Myanma Airways. On 27 August 1995, Air Mandalay started its first international service from Yangon to Chiang Mai in Thailand.[1]

The airline ceased operations in September 4, 2018 amidst overcapacity in Myanmar's aviation market.[2]
