There are five domestic airlines operating in Myanmar. Namely, Asian Wings, Air Kanbawza, Yangon Airways, Air Mandalay and Air Bagan. Asian Cherry Travel only uses these private companies as they operate according to international safety standards and offer international service. The airlines operate frequent flights to all major tourist destinations country wide and a constantly expanding air network with ATR-72, ATR-42 and Fokker 100 aircrafts. Baggage allowance on domestic flights is 20kg. Excess luggage can be left in Yangon hotels for collection on return from upcountry. Due to limited number of air crafts, almost all flights leave very early from Yangon and often flight time changes in very short notice even during on tours.
Asian Cherry provides the best available air-conditioned cars and coaches for all tours. Please be reminded though that due to the past import restrictions on new imports, cars & buses in Myanmar are much older compared to other countries in South East Asia. This situation as well as the laws is changing now rapidly and we hope to provide more new coaches of higher standard very soon. Car and buses in Yangon tend to be of better quality than in upcountry locations. Round trip transfers between airports, rail depot, piers and hotels by coach, mini van, or car is included as indicated. Full time ground transport limits total 8 hour use of car, mini van or coach. Inter-cities private transfer covers coaches, mini van or car between one major city to another. Asian Cherry and its suppliers use all vehicles equipped with air-conditioned system however due to poor road conditioned and poor quality gas the system may not function properly. In some areas, where facilities do not exist we will provide with the best available alternative. If in case of coach, mini van, car break down we or our local suppliers try our best to fix them in due time, if the damage if beyond repair then we try to provide best available alternative means to the nearest port where proper transportation facility exist and can be replaced.
