Air KBZ is planning to launch its first international service next month with twice-weekly flights between Yangon and Chiang Mai, the Trade Times journal has reported.
The privately-owned carrier has applied to the Department of Civil Aviation for permission to fly to the northern Thai city, the journal said in its September 5 edition.
Air KBZ plans to use one of the French-made ATR-600 turboprop aircraft it acquired earlier this year for US$22 million on the Chiang Mai route, the report said.
In an indication that Air KBZ is considering other foreign destinations, the report said the carrier was planning to buy two aircraft next year for international routes.
Air KBZ, owned by Kanbawza Bank, began operations in April 2011 and flies to 16 destinations in Myanmar.
