Korea and Myanmar Now Not as Far Apart

Good news for Korea and Myanmar.  Myanmar is anticipated to be a major investment destination for Korean companies.  Korean Air, realizing this trend, has launched the first non-stop flight from Korean to Yangon, Myanmar.  The flight will commence in early September of this year.   The flight time will, thus, be reduced from 10 hours to 6 hours.

If the flight is well subscribed, expect Asiana Air to quickly follow suit.
