Myanmar’s first and most comprehensive fare-compare website has expanded to offer a host of new services and products designed to make travelling in Myanmar stress-free.
Flymya was launched in June this year to allow customers to check flight schedules for every domestic airline and to book tickets via Paypal, major credit cards and Myanmar Payment Union (MPU). E-tickets are provided and cash payments can also be accepted by visiting Flymya’s office in downtown Yangon.
Flymya also guarantees the cheapest flights available, so it’s no surprise that it’s currently processing more than 1,000 flight bookings a month.
“As an avid traveller myself – both for business and leisure – I understood that there was a need to create an online platform that would take the pain out of arranging travel plans in Myanmar. As tourism continues to boom, I’m excited to play a role in modernising my country’s travel sector,” Flymya founder Mike Than Tun Win told The Global New Light of Myanmar on 13 October.
According to a press release issued yesterdat, the new features on the website include all-inclusive tour packages booking for day-trips in Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and the Heho region. It also offers hotel bookings and car rentals in major hubs such as Mandalay, Yangon and Nay Pyi Taw.
The website has also added a photo gallery linked to its Instagram account and a blog filled with information for visitors about local foods, religious sites, nature spots, traditions and customs.
Mike Than Tun Win said the expansion is designed to help reduce travel hassles — particularly for first-time visitors to Myanmar.
“Many travellers find that they need to go in person to a local travel agent to book everything they want to do. As credit cards are still not widely accepted – even at restaurants and the like – it can be very time-consuming to arrange travel plans in Myanmar. Our goal is to make it easy – and to free up precious time to explore this fascinating country.”
Flymya also offers travellers with free advice on vaccinations, destinations and visa requirements. Its dedicated customer service team speaks both English and Myanmar and replies to all email inquiries within 24 hours. Flymya prides itself on offering the highest levels of customer in Myanmar, said Mike Than Tun Win, who returned to Myanmar in 2010 after a successful business career in Singapore.
“We received many requests from our customers to provide additional services, such as tour packages and car rentals. The expansion of our services gives travellers peace of mind because they know that we’ve sorted the nitty-gritty details for them before they even land.”
