Pre-booking domestic flights in Myanmar

Pre-booking domestic flights in Myanmar

My spouse and I are Canadians who will be travelling to Myanmar for 3 weeks in February and March 2014. We will be taking four domestic flights while there: (1) Yangon - Nyaung U (2) Nyaung U - Heho (3) Heho - Thandwe and (4) Thandwe - Yangon.

Is it safe to assume that we can book these flights once we arrive in Yangon, or should be pre-book them from Canada? I travelled to Myanmar in 2005 and booked all my domestic flights once I arrived in Yandon, which was not a problem, but I understand that tourism has increased dramatically in Myanmar and I am concerned that flights may sell out.

If the recommendation is to pre-book the domestic flights from Canada, can anyone recommend a travel agency that can assist with this?

Thank you.

You can book your own flights on Asian Wings https://www.visitmm.com/

If there isn't any available, they would try to get you a seat on Air Bagan. I wouldn't wait till the last minute. I am on wait list for late December (Bagan to Heho)

I think you'd better to book in advance. Travel agencies are not necessary, do that directly in airlines (KBZ, Asian Wings, Air Mandalay etc.).

I would book ahead if I were you. Try www.visitmm.com. You can pay them online hassle free. They will send you an e-ticket. I used their service earlier this year and I had no problem at all.
