- Myanmar National Airlines on 4 December began a new international service from Yangon (RGN) to Hong Kong (HKG). The 1,952-kilometre route will be operated four times weekly by the carrier with its 737-800s. The route is already served by Dragonair with daily flights. Hong Kong thus becomes the airline’s second international destination after Singapore, which was launched back on 17 August.
