Mann Yadanarpon Airlines (MYP) was incorporated as a private limited liability company on July 23, 2013, and granted a permit by the MyanmarInvestment Commission under the Myanmar Citizens Investment Law to operate air transportation services on both domestic and international routes.
Mann Yadanarpon Airlines is the first airline in Myanmar to base its operations at Mandalay International Airport. Mandalay is the second largest city and the cultural centre of Myanmar in close proximity to the main tourist destinations of Bagan and Inle Lake (Heho).
Whereas only one international airline was operating to Mandalay International Airport up to a year ago, five international airlines are now operating to the airport. Therefore, by basing its operations at Mandalay International Airport, MYP aims to provide convenient international flight connections to international travelers arriving at and departing from Mandalay.
MYP plans to expand its operations to regional destinations after successfully operating domestic services for two years.
MYP's initial fleet will be two new ATR 72-600 aircraft with the second aircraft arriving in March 2014. After two years of operation, MYP will acquire an Airbus A-320 aircraft on an operational lease basis for its planned regional operations as well as additional ATR aircraft.
Our current destinations for the current winter season are Yangon, Mandalay, Nyaung-U (Bagan), Heho (Inle Lake), Tachileik, Kengtung, Myitkyina, Lashio, Thandwe (Ngapali), Dawei, Myeik and Kaw-thaung. All of our destinations are of tourism and/or commercial signifcance.
We will expand our network to more domestic destinations after acquiring additional aircraft. When we commence regional operations, we plan to operate initially to Chiang Mai in Thailand.
Our Flight Crew
MYP's pilots are all qualified on ATR 72-212 and ATR 72-500 aircraft types. MYP's current flight crew consists of two ATR 72-600-qualified rating instructors hired from ATR undertaking line training for MYP's pilots until they are qualified for aircraft type rating on the ATR 72-600 before flying scheduled passenger flights.
Our Cabin Crew
Our cabin crew supervisors have been trained at ATR in France and hold instructor certificates for ATR 72-600-type aircraft. All of our cabin crew have attended the Airline Cabin Crew Training Course conducted by the Myanmar Aviation Training and Services (MATS) at the Department of Civil Aviation Training Institute in Yangon. MATS is a DCA Myanmar-approved training organization with instructors certified by ATR trained in the UK.
Our Aircraft Maintenance Crew
MYP s licensed aircraft maintenance engineers have type ratings on ATR 72-212 and ATR 72-500 and are attending ATR training courses as required to obtain certification approval on ATR 72-600 aircraft. In the interim, maintenance of MYP s aircraft will be contracted to Myanma Airways, a government-owned airline, which has an Approved Maintenance Organization Certificate issued by the Department of Civil Aviation, Myanmar. Thereafter, MYP will carry out airline fleet maintenance with its own approved maintenance and repair organisation.
MYP will strive to offer higher safety standards, better customer service and more efficiency which exceeds the expectations of our passengers.
